A super easy and nutritious side for rice or roti made with Indian pulses. Tadka means ‘tempering’. The Dal which I am using in my recipe is the Toor dal which goes by many names including Pigeon Pea.

Things you need:

1. Toor dal – 1/2 cup
2. Turmeric powder -1 tsp
3. Onion – 1
4. Tomato -1

6. Curry leaves – 1 spring
7. Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
