About Black Urad Dal Recipe

Love the Dals / Lentils! As they are high in protein, super versatile, a good source of fiber and have lots of vitamins and minerals in them. Here is the unique style Black Urad Dal recipe. The Black Urad Dal is everyday Dal in Punjabi’s. Traditionally, the creaminess of the dal comes in slow cooking the lentil for hours but here we have tried recreating the creaminess by pressure-cooking the dal. This dal can be enjoyed with basmati rice as well as with Indian bread such as naan, paratha etc.
