Chholar Dal from Kichu Khon

Hello Friends,


I have been meaning to make this for a while. I am not sure how many of you have ever visited Kolkata. If you have not then here is the info for you. If you have, I am sure you already know about it. On Kolkata street, usually early in the morning (around breakfast time), you get a famous combo called "Loochi Ar Chholar Dal" meaning Poori (Fried Indian Bread) with Chana Dal (Bengal Gram Preparation). I have enjoyed it thoroughly and it is absolutely one of my favorite breakfast to have. But, yesterday, we actually enjoyed it as a dinner.
Usually, I prepare Bengal Gram dal as Tadke Wala Chana Dal and have been dying to try this recipe from Sharmila. If you haven't checked out her blog, please do so now. I have used the same recipe as hers except for adding Paanch-Phoran (as I like that flavor) to the tempering along with other things. It came out beautifully and I licked my fingers and wanted to eat more even after I was full :) I have used her recipe of Chholar Dal as it is, so not repeating the details here. Please visit her blog to check out her details. It is really easy to prepare and quick too :)


I am sending this to Aipi and mine Bookmarked Recipe - Every Tuesday (Volume 39) event and my Flavors of Bengal event start by Nayna.
 

I am also sending to MLLA # 34 hosted by Desi Soccer Mom and started by Susan.

That's all for now. Take care till next post.
