mix dal recipemix dal recipe | mix daal recipe | how to make mix dal fry with step by step photo and video recipe. north indian cuisine has many variations to the simple and tasty dal recipes. generally lentil based curry is prepared with lentil which is typically pressure cooked and tempered with onion, tomato and other spices. mixed dal recipe is a unique recipe cooked with 4 different lentils.

as i mentioned previously, i have used 4 different lentils in this mix dal recipe, but my initial plan was to use 5 lentils. traditionally mixed dal recipe may contain 5 or more different types of lentils. but with more options, it brings more complexity to the recipe, and i personally like my recipes to be simple and tasty. basically you can add black urad dal as your fifth lentil but the downside of using it is, it has to be overnight soaked before pressure cooking it. undoubtedly adding whole urad dal brings a new dimension to this recipe, in terms of texture and taste. but it is not a quick solution and certainly not if you are planning it to have instantly. you are more than welcome to add it if you prefer it and soak it overnight.

furthermore, i would like to add few tips and variation to this simple mix dal recipe. firstly, the recipe can be easily improvised by altering the quantity of each dal or lentil. i have followed the equal ratio but, can be easily extended as per your choice and preference. secondly, the consistency is very important for any dal recipes. i have maintained a medium thickness of consistency and i would heavily recommend the same to be maintained. lastly, the recipe i have shared here is a dal fry and hence i have not added the tempering separately after i finished cooking. if you prefer dal tadka style, add jeera, mustard, red chilies and chilli powder tempering at the last step. also you can add dry fenugreek leaves too for tempering.
