Bottlegourd & Raw Peanut Dal

Have you ever tried making dals with raw peanuts, if not you should give a try to this super comforting,nutty and fingerlicking dal.I never thought of  adding raw peanuts in dal until i choosed making food with peanuts for this whole week of blogging marathon,but my guess about this dal wasnt wrong. This yummy, super delicious dal tastes absolutely yummy,peanuts gives an incredible texture to this usual dal.

As this is my first time am adding peanuts in dal, i dont want making simple dal with those raw peanuts thats y i added few bottlegourd chunks in this fingerlicking dal.You can prepare this dal even if you are in hurry, which tastes absolutely marvellous and comforting.Serve them along with hot steaming rice,some spicy mango pickle and papads nothing will beat this combination.Check out the other marathoners running blogging marathon here.
