    I love dry dal with greens. Methi dal is nice side dish even with rice and some rasam on the side.

    Such a delicious and healthy curry with methi and toor dal. I’ve never tried this combo – will have to try it out when I get some fresh methi leaves.

    That’s one healthy and delicious recipe. I usually use toor dal to make dals and sambhar. Have never thought of using dry toor dal. Love the addition of methi. Would love to try this dish with roti.
