I love simple dals often and its one of my comforting food, this time i wanted to change my usual way of making dals and went for this simple, mildly sweet tuvar dal which tastes awesome with rice topped with ghee or either with pulkas or rotis..This tuvar dal goes for easy preparation and jaggery added finally in this dal change the taste of this dal completely...I loved this dal and am gonna prepare them often as everyone at home loved this slightly sweet dal..Sending this dal to Nayna's Flavours of Gujarat & to Susan's MLLA#27..
1cup Toor dal
1no Tomato (chopped)
1tsp Mustard seeds, cumin seeds
