      If you had to name just one dish that unites all of India, it would probably be Dal. A staple in every household, in every nook and corner of the country, every meal feels incomplete if you don’t have Dal to accompany it. However, Dal has many, many variations and the Dal that you eat at home might be very different from the one that you eat at someone else’s place. This Moringa Dal recipe that we ... have for you today is our take on this incredibly popular dish, a humble attempt if you may, to make it more nutritious. To make this dish, you would primarily need Chana Dal and Yellow Moong Dal. Just 2 teaspoons of refined oil go into making this dish to ensure that you don’t end up counting this Moringa Dal calories and it also contains a generous amount of garlic to aid in digestion. Seasoned with Red Chilli powder, Asafoetida, Cumin and Coriander powder to give it flavour and a hint of spice, this Dal with its aroma and rich flavour pairs perfectly with freshly prepared Rotis, Parathas and steaming hot serving of Rice. And finally, don’t forget to squeeze lemon on it for some tarty punch and garnish it with freshly chopped coriander leaves to add a dash of freshness to it. An important thing to remember is to not cook the Dal for too long after adding Moringa leaves as you don’t want Moringa to lose its magical properties. Learn how to make Moringa Dal at home now!
