Today I decided to make Daal fry for lunch. My maiden tryst with Daal fry was immediately after marriage when we went to a restaurant with our friends. One of them ordered Daal fry and to my surprise it turned out to be a curry contrary to my expectations of a dry dish. 🙂 Daal fry is a simple curry consisting of cooked lentils (Daal), sauteed onions, tomatoes and finished off with a tempering. It can be served with rice or any bread of your choice
