About Tamater wali Daal...(Tomato Daal) Recipe

Tomatoes are used aplenty in this daal. A lovely variation of daal that can served with rice and rotis too. Too yummy and a bit tangy too due to juicy tomatoes. This goes well with rice and pickle and can be described as a perfect comfort meal along with poppadums (papad). Happy Eating !!!!!!!!!!!!!
