Do you know what happens when Punjab meets Rajasthan… Yummy Meal gets ready. Yes, I am talking about Langarwali Dal with Bejar ki Roti.

This Dal (Lentil) recipe has a delicious and healthy blend of two dals and a spicy zing reminding of the authentic langar wali dal. One day I visited gurudwara with my friends and family and I had a meal, I was so overwhelmed by eating the meal, the very next day I cannot resist myself without trying this dal. I made this dal in lunch with authentic Bejar ki roti of Rajasthan.
