MASOOR DAL TADKA | RESTAURANT STYLE DAL TADKA RECIPE

Dal-tadka
Whenever i made dal at home, though everyone say it is good, i somehow feel it is not like the one we have in restaurants. Since i am not satisfactory, i haven't posted the dal tadka recipe so far. I had a pack of Masoor dal which i bought from Delhi during our visit in March. When i was casually talking to a friend few days back over phone, i told her i have a pack of Masoor dal and wanted to make a dal tadka. She immediately gave me the recipe. She learnt that recipe of dal from her aunty and she told it will be very nice. When i made it it tasted so awesome and it was like the one which we eat in restaurants. finally i got the perfect taste and i thought i should share this with you all. This can be made with yellow moong dal too.
