Dal Bhorta is an easy side dish that is often made in my home when there is not enough groceries or my mom does not feel like cooking. A trick to making dal bhorta is using left over dal from previous meals. You will just have to heat the dal so that all the water dries up completely, and the dal can be made into a paste. It is eaten with plain white rice, or can also be used to make dal poori.
Serve with plain white rice.
