Spicy Masoor Dal/ Red lentil 

Today I am sharing a Dal recipe with U people as Dal is my comfort food whenever i don’t want to overload myself or after i have eaten out a lot ( n feeling guilty as hell) Dal or any lentils give you so much protein which we herbivores are usually deficit in so try including dals/lentils in your everyday diet as much as possible
