This week’s Bengali recipe Kalai er dal and aloo posto is one of the famous,hot combo that is served in an authentic Bengali lunch thali.I actually wanted to try aloo posto recipe and some bengali style dal recipe with toor dal or masoor dal.But when i was going through some blogs,they had mentioned aloo posto tastes great with kalai-er dal (dal made of split white urad dal).As i have not tried any dal recipes with urad dal,i tried this combo recipes from here.Both are no onion no garlic dishes.As Bengali’s say,aloo posto and kalai dal is really a classic combo and healthy too.The dal was aromatic with fennel n ginger flavour and alu posto was a bit spicy sidedish coated with poppy seeds paste.This combo went along each other very well . We loved its taste.I had some leftover dal and aloo posto for dinner and i found its taste was much much improved.I think this dish needs some standing time for all the flavours to blend well.Ok,lets see how to make this bengali urad dal and the famous aloo posto recipes below .
