Dal tadka or yellow dal is one of the signature dishes of Indian main course.
You can never ever get bored of it.A good dhaba style dal is a dish you will savor always.I always love having this dish with some jeera rice,matar pulao or a huge bowl of fried rice.Pair it with a Paneer curry,raita and a tandoori roti.This is a perfect vegetarian main course.I am already hungry as I write this 🙂
If you do not want to go elaborate with your menu, pair it with some fried poori or plain basmati rice.
