Dal Fry recipe is one of most common north Indian recipes you can find on the internet. Dal fry recipe is prepared by Arhar dal also known as pigeon lentil, or you can also use masoor dal as well for this recipe.

The two common kinds of lentil soup served in Indian cuisine is Dal fry and dal fry tadka. Both of these recipes have only one distinction, and that is the tadka, also referred to tempering.

Dal fry recipe is easy to make does not involve a lot of cooking skills to be true. Dal fry is usually accompanied with any vegetable sabzi( aloo ki sabzi, bindi ki sabzi) and roti or fulka (Indian bread). Most people tend to serve dal fry with steamed rice as well, though I love it with both equally.

You can always use a combination of lentils, but I prefer to use only toor dal or Arhar ki dal for this dal fry recipe.
