Is khatti daal perfect for a rainy season or not? because these days it seems it will be raining. I saw it was raining in Islamabad couple of days ago. There are lots of dal recipes that are in my cooking queue.

If lentils cooked correctly, they can taste much better than a chicken cooked poorly. Love all lentils that are masoor lentil, mash lentil, chana dal lentil and so on. They offer superb taste just like a treat. That is why i love lentil recipes and cook them frequently.

I am just wondering that if chana daal was used in this recipe. I see it in dal chana category but it is quite different . It uses masoor daal. what would you say admins..
