Recipe

Dal Phool Curry (red lentils pasta)

The credit for this dish entirely goes to my mom who called me up one fine day morning and told me this recipe which she had tried. She has High B.P and thyroid problems and she is a very choosy eater. But she too mentioned about the healthy sides of this dish ,how good it tastes and how easy it is on the stomach etc. This is a very old traditional recipe but While making this curry I made some modifications such that it is liked by my toddler daughter.
