Today, I am here with a lipsmacking Methi Dal recipe. This flavorful n tasty dal is prepared with fresh methi leaves and toor dal cooked together with Indian spices. This nutritious and protein packed dish makes a perfect summer time meal. I used toor dal in this recipe, you can also try this with masoor dal, which tastes equally good. This dal tastes best with soft n fluffy chapattis, laccha paratha or rotis. Also you can serve it with plain steamed rice, pickle and papad too.
