This yummy dal is Suvir Saran's recipe , i have modified it a bit. I grew up eating tuvar and moong dal . Never tried cooking masoor dal myself too. Then came across this simple recipe and gave it a try and everybody loved it at home. And i loved to cook it as this dal too cooks quickly like moong dal.
