Yesterday i tried this dal sukka from Mallika badrinath’s Kurma varieties book.It was very nice..We all liked it..My hubby had this with chapathi , My doter savored this with dosa and me with curd rice..This dal tasted best for everything.If u’ve got bored by making the same Veg / Aloo kurmas , I would say this dal sukka is a nice replacement.Healthy & Easy too..Try this and let me know ..
DAL SUKKA

Ingredients:
  • Moong dal – 1/4 cup
  • Big onion – 2nos (chopped finely)
  • Ginger ,Garlic – A few pieces or u can use G &G paste of 1 tsp

Method :
  • Grind ginger , garlic and green chilly to a paste and set aside.
