Tarka dal & Naan bread.

I chose not to use Bay leaf but add tomatoes at the end,  Olive oil in place of the large amount of butter gee in the video works for me.

Simply good tasting healthy food to mop up with Naan.

Nice, plain and simple LC

Theres two ways a Restaurant Chef would do this old favourite side dish.
A garlic tarka/bhagar at the beginning, like the Viceroy video
or the more common and traditional two pan method, with the tarka at the end.

I’ve posted about this tasty dish previously, with a video recipe

Moving up a level..
A vegetarian main dish Panch Dhal is served in some BIR

Here’s how they cook it, with my video recipe.

Burn those spices "Singefry" and Bhunao are the keys to success.
Smoking Mustard Oil is good for You and your curries.....Lol

Hi Chewy, the tarka at the end is also a must for me, more garlic the better as I love that deep flavour ;)

Thanks for the recommended Panch Dhal link I will be checking it out very soon.

Did you burn the garlic like he does in the video LC? I always thought this was a no no. Does it taste alright?

PS I realised watching this that the smell in a lot of restaurants, that I couldn't previously put my finger on is probably burnt garlic.

Hi MM, yep get that garlic real brown if you want the smoky BIR flavour, just don't burn it as there is a big difference.

Like Chewy said its old school BIR, not many places have or take the time for such extravagance now due to speed and overbooking I guess.

I have been in only a few BIR that take the time to put a good tarka on some of there main dishes, it really stands out from the crowd.

Thanks.
