Dal Tadka Restaurant Style

Dal Tadka Restaurant Style is a simple and easy dal made in a restaurant that we can make in minutes in our kitchen and one of the most popular versions of dals.

When I picked up North Indian Thali to make at home, I needed a Dal that I had to add. Since I have made most of the dals that are popular and even the Dal Tadka Fry, which I came to know from a restaurant chef, I asked Vaishali if she can suggest another one.

So she shared the recipe of Dal Tadka that was made in her restaurant. The dal is very easy and simple to make, yet tastes great with rice and roti as well.

Planning for a thali is quite a tough task as you have to have dishes that compliment each other and at the same time, get done quickly. I would highly recommend this dal on all counts!

We are starting the BM#88, Week 3, where I will be sharing some Dazzling Dals.

When I had this theme, I had in mind the Dal that is the dried, split pulses. Pulses include lentils, peas, and beans. In these daals, the outer hull is usually stripped off. The dal that has not been hulled is described as chilka (skin), e.g. chilka urad dal, mung dal chilka.

  1. Though I read about variety of dal recipes, I stick to the traditional one which mom made. After looking at all the recipes of dazzling dals this month, even I am tempted to try other recipes. This dal fry sounds like an easy recipe to start with.

  2. Such a fingerlicking goodness, this dal tadka looks simply fabulous and comforting.. My kind of comforting food. Can finish my lunch happily with this dal tadka.

  3. There are so many amazing dal recipes. This has been an awesome theme. We got to see so many great variations. This one looks so good with the thali.

  4. Dal is always comforting. 🙂 No matter how many different ways you make it. Love this simple version of al tadka. The thali is amazing Valli. 🙂

  5. Few simple ingredients can change the taste of a simple dish. Garam masala, kasuri methi make this dal extra special. The whole thali looks very inviting.
