As we all know it that dal/lentils are rich in proteins and in India it is a very important part of our daily food. It can be said as a compulsory thing that one has to have a dal in his thali or the meal is said to be incomplete. As we make dal in the form of tadka dal, curry and so on….In south they make payasam’s/kheer with dal as the main ingredient.
They make kheer/payasam with moong dal, chana dal and there are many sweet dishes prepared out of dals. As in Karnataka and Maharashtra they make the traditional Puran Poli (sweet stuffed roti) where the filling is made out of Chana dal and jaggery or toor dal and jaggery. The Marwadi’s they make this awesome moong dal halwa which is absolutely yummy.
