  • Navratna Daal And Millet Adai
    Cook time 10 mins

    Navratna DAal and Millet Adai is a protein-packed South Indian dish that consists of nine kinds of lentils and pulses in it. In this recipe, I have used daals like tuvar, urad, yellow chana dhal, whole green moong, splitted yellow moong, whole masoor, splitted masoor, white chana and rajma. To enhance its nutritional quotient, I have used foxtail millet instead of rice. Slightly thicker and filling than dosas, ‘Navratna Daal and Millet Adai’ is easy to prepare as it needs no fermentation unlike dosas. It is best suited for breakfast or for Sunday brunch. While adai and avial ( vegetable and coconut stew) is the popular combo down South, you can serve it with jaggery, butter or desi ghee also.

  • Kacha Aamer Tok Daal (Soupy Red Lentils with Raw Mango)
    Cook time 20 mins

    Bengalis never use tamarind in the Daals. Hence the sourness would be a result of either raw tomatoes or raw mangoes. If you ever have had the chance to try some Tok Daal during summer months you will know how refreshing it is to have the daal in your meal after you have just come out of the sun. It sourness acts as an appetizer as well because otherwise the extreme heat usually slows down your metabolism and you don’t feel like eating. Try this daal today.
