I am a big fan of Rajasthani food and especially there Dal Batti but still I haven’t got chance to prepare this but I have plan to do it in future for sure. In my some previous post I have mentioned about my neighbors’ who were from Rajasthan and I got to learn lots of recipes from her. This is one of delicious Dal recipe I have learnt from her. The Dal has fantastic aroma and I am sure you will love this with your simple lunch or dinner.Sending this Recipe to SpiceNFlavors
