Dal Curry | Simple Dal Tadka

Dal curry is one of the simplest side dish I make often.It takes hardly 10 minutes and it suits almost all tiffin items. Again a party recipe and I had to make simple stuff for the veggies due to time crunch.It has a subtle taste and goes well with rice too.I prepare this once a week and serve it for dinner with Idly/dosa and pack it for lunch with rice and makes my job easy.
