The intelligent combination of gavar and masoor gives a dal that brims with flavour and overflows with nutrition! Onions and tomatoes turn out to be effective helpers in any dal recipe, improving the texture and flavour of the dish. A simple but smart tempering also works in favour of this dal, improving its aroma and taste manifold.

This Gavar aur Masoor ki Dal is a wonderful dish to have during pregnancy because cluster beans is one of the best sources of fibre amongst vegetables. Combine this tasty dish with hot phulkas to make a healthy and satiating meal. For a change, you can replace masoor dal with yellow moong dal also, and follow the same recipe.

I have always cooked cluster beans to make a subzi. Never thought of adding it to a dal to make it more nourishing... Good idea and quiet tasty!!
