The main source of protein in our diet is from Dal or lenthils. The go to dal for me is Toor Dal which is also called as Pigeon Dal. It not only is nutritious but also enhances the flavor even when I make authentic Dalithoy. Any Konkani Food Blogger will feel their blog incomplete if they do not post the recipe for Dalithoy. Mine is incomplete too :-)
Whenever I go to India I scribble down recipes in a book from my in-laws and aunts. This recipe is from my Aunt and I made a note of this may be more than 3 years back. She served me this dal when we went to have dinner at her place. I immediately asked her for the recipe.
