Let me take you to Punjab with my Dal Tadka Blast recipe. Dal Tadka is a Punjabi yellow dal cooked with onion, tomato and flavored with generous amount of tempered ghee and spices.

When we talk about spices we refer to turmeric powder, red chili powder, coriander powder and the list goes on. Your kaamchor has found an easy option even in this space this Diwali. Yes it’s such a blessing to use one box for all your spices need.

Any Indian restaurant menu is incomplete without this mouthwatering preparation of dal. Similarly my kitchen is incomplete without any shortcuts. This recipe of dal tadka is not what we make every day at home. So make this dish once a while to break the routine or when you have invited guests at home. If you are planning this dish for a party or get-together then you can prepare the dal previous day and store it in refrigerator. Next day just re-heat the dal by adding water and pour fresh tadka with a blast just before serving. This creamy, rich and smooth dal is tempered with Punjabi spices and ghee. It makes the perfect accompaniment to Cooked Rice or Rotis.
