Dal fry is a lentil dish which is really tasty and goes well with Rotis and white rice. This is a recipe I finally rounded up after trying so many recipes. This one is the tastiest of them all.

Boil for 2 more minutes.

- You can also add Masoor dal and channa dal to this recipe. I could not find them here yet so I have skipped them.
