Lasooni dal tadka | lasuni dal is a simple dal recipe made with the addition of lot of garlic. I have given this recipe for Aval vikatan supplement 3 years back. While i was going through those books, i thought i will post this easy dal recipe. This can be had as an accompaniment with plain rice or with chapathi or paratha. Adding lot of garlic gives a nice flavour to the dal and also enhances the taste.
