Recipe : Daal Banjaari / How to make Banjari Dal / Mix Lentils Stew

Dal Banjaari – Dal banjaari is the recipe made with mixed lentils like Black Gram, Bengal Gram,Pink lentil and pigeon peas dal.
It is very spicy daal recipe flavored with Garlic Tadka. It is very healthy because of the combination of the lentils.I think the origin of this dal recipe is Rajasthan because of the spicy ness of chili and the aroma of the garlic.

This Dal usually serve with Roti , Paratha, Subji and Rice. You can Check my tutorial On How to Make Perfact Paratha and Also Check Onion Pulao Recipe which goes perfect with banjari dal.
