Dal fry recipe | How to make dal fry | Parippu curry


    Dal fry is a simple and easy-to-make Indian side dish we can make with any varieties of dal/lentils like toor dal, masoor dal, mung dal, chana dal, etc. Lentils are very considered as a superfood rich in soluble fiber and help to reduce cholesterol. Lentils are also rich in magnesium and folate which reduces heart diseases. We can serve day fry with any main course like roti or rice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I made this dish with basic ingredients that are available all-time in our kitchen.
