Thanni dal... simple dal but a little watery

Eating the same kind of dal every time can be really boring. My father-in-law has a favroite dal recipe .. thanni dal which means watery dal and that is where I picked the name from. This version has a heavy aroma of garlic which adds to the taste. Try this and you will love to add this to your everyday making dal list.

Curry leaves 1 tbspn
