Dal Fara Recipe


Dal Fara is a very healthy and nutritious as dal is rich in protein and the cooking technique used is either steaming or boiling. We make this for lunch or dinner and serve it with green coriander chutney. I like to make it a bit crispy, so I stir fry it and use curry leaves and mustard seeds for tempering.
