A proper Indian meal is never complete without having dal. Needless to say that dal is an integral dish of the Indian cuisine. However, sometimes we do get bored of having the same dal again and again. That is why, there is a wide variety of dal recipes in all Indian cuisines. What we are making today is a dal from Rajasthan. It is called Panchmel dal. This dal recipe is a specialty of Rajasthan and was traditionally cooked on wood fire.
As the name Panchmel dal suggests, this dal recipe is prepared with 5 different kinds of dals. True to the style of an Indian recipe, it also has a fair amount of spices. However, the main flavour of Panchmel dal comes from the mixture of 5 dals and not the spices. Garam masala, hing and dry red chillies are used to make Panchmel dal just like any typical Indian recipe.
