Jhatpat Dal

    25 mins

    As the name suggests this dal can be made quickly and easily as any other dals. But the difference is in fact that there is no masala added and also the minimum spices used. Hope u enjoy this dish as much me and parents. This recipe was my brainwave one boring evening as i was waiting for my parents and had to cook something lite and nutritious for dinner.
