Dal is a very staple food at our house and all of us love to have dal with plain rice or roti too. Especially kids will eat dal without any complaints. When i shared 30 recipes for Aval vikatan magazine, i gave this recipe of carrot dal too. In the normal dal ,which we make i added carrots and used masoor dal in the place of normal dal. While making this post again for blog, i don’t have masoor dal at home , so replaced with yellow moong dal. Check out my masoor dal tadka.

Carrot-dalNote:

  1. Do not add the lemon juice while dal is boiling. It will make the dal bitter.

  3.   Adding kasoori methi in the last will enhance the flavor.
