This is a very traditional one pot meal which is very healthy and tasty.We are using black urad dhall.In this recipe we have used more garlic , if you dont like garlic you can use it less.This is not a spicy dish ,pepper gives aroma,you can add red chillies while seasoning if you want to make a spicy one.
