This is the protein-packed Rajasthani Dal recipe. Panch =5 and mel =mix ,one of the most popular dal of Rajasthan is delicious and nutritious.Traditionally, 5 dals are used and hence the name -"Panch mel" dal The dal is thick and can be eaten with Chapati,Roti, Paratha or jeera rice. But to make it more protein rich I added green peas ,chick peas and also kidney beans (Rajma).
I first ate this dal in Hyderabad at Dhola-ri-Dhani (An Ethentic Rajasthani resort) where authentic Rajasthani cuisine is served.I liked the taste of this spicy dal. I got this recipie from Sanjeev Kapoors "Khana Khazana book".
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp red chilly powder
2 tomatoes ,Chopped
2 green chillies
1/2 " inch ginger

4. Add tomatoes and fry till oil comes out.
