About Gondhoraj Lebur Dal / Gondhoraj Lemon Dal Recipe

A very flavourful ,sour , little sweet , mildly spicy thin dal cooked in Bengali style . Whenever i cook this dal i miss my hometown . In Bahrain i did not get Gondhoraj lemon , so i have used it's close relative kaffir lime . In my family we prefer thin dal , if you want thick dal add less water. Currently staying in Bahrain.
