Mixed Vegetables with Chana Dhal

 This is a dhal curry using mixed vegetable and channa dhal. We south Indians use channa dhal in making kootu or in sweets like obbatu. We call this dhal as kadalai paruppu. I didn’t taste this curry before. I made it for the first time and liked it a lot.

  This was healthy and easy to make dhal curry. The ingredients required to make this curry will be easily available in everyone’s home.

Wash and soak the dhal for 30 minutes.
Cook the dhal with the turmeric powder and required water.

Heat oil ina pan , add the hing and green chillies , sauté for a minute.
Now , add the chopped tomato , chopped ginger and vegetables and sauté for two minutes.
