any dal recipes or variation of dal recipes are very simple to prepare and it begins with pressure cooking it as a standard procedure. a simple dal can be cooked entirely in pressure cooker by frying the onion and tomato which is later pressure cooked with choice of lentils. it is thrifty and economical and more importantly hastens the entire procedure. however a dal fry tadka dhaba style recipe is slightly different and is a 3 step process. firstly the toor dal and channa dal is pressure cooked separately. later the finely chopped onions and tomatoes is sautéed with spices till it forms as a paste to which the cooked dal is added. finally ghee tempering is added to dhaba style dal tadka with red chilli powder, garlic and whole red chilies.

dal fry tadka dhaba style recipewhile there isn’t much complication with dhaba style dal tadka recipe, yet i would highlight few tips and suggestions. firstly, i have taken 1:1 ratio for toor dal vs channa dal. it can also be prepared with 2:1 ratio of channa dal and toor dal. secondly, do not mash the pressured cooked dal completely. it tastes good when served with some unmashed dal which also gives a nice texture to it. lastly, dal fry tadka should always be served hot otherwise it would solidify. you can also reheat by adding some water to bring it to a right consistency.
