Dal Tadka is a popular recipe which is served at restaurants and serves as a great sidedish for jeera rice
or just plain rice. I had requests to post different dal recipes
.....I have tasted dal tadka twice when they served at buffet lunch and I love it with plain basmati rice.I have already posted Dal Fry
..... Now here is dal tadka recipe.Tadka means tempering which plays a major part in any indian recipes.You can try out dal tadka using any combination of dal but I used toor dal and masoor dal.
I always had the confusion whats the difference between dal fry and dal tadka...and here is my find :
: The dal is pressure cooked along with onion,tomato first.Then the tadka tempering is done in ghee and added to dal and is ready to be served.Here the tadka tempering is the main flavour given to the dal.
: The dal is pressure cooked first and added with tadka ingredients along with a mixture of onion,tomato ginger and garlic mixture and the dal is boiled for few mins which gives a great flavour.
