Dal fry is made with toor dal mostly (split pigeon peas), an easy to cook, comfort food that goes well with steamed rice and some have it with roti/ phulkas too. I like it with both😃.My favourite dish in North Indian cuisine! Whenever I get a chance to go to a North Indian restaurant,my order will be Dal fry with steamed rice and kadai paneer…. My ever green combo! Today I just felt like making this at home and here’s the recipe…Thanks to Sangeeta for the recipe!

I have added tadka on top which is not a part of dal fry recipe, still I love the way it looks so, I added a tadka over it, which actually is the main difference between dal fry and dal tadka. I make dal fry with toor dal by cooking dal first and then adding it and cook further along with tempered jeera, tomato and other masalas. And I keep dal tadka simple with moong dal and a tadka on top (either like the one you see below or like the one I posted here). Just my way of making dal tadka and dal fry, though there are numerous variations.
You can garnish with lots of chopped coriander leaves for a great flavor, Serve with hot steaming basmati rice or roti.
