If you’re a Pakistani and anything like the Pakistani family I grew up in, you’ll know that we do heartily reach for the chicken and meat dishes much more than the vegetarian options. Daal is wonderful side dish to serve alongside any non-vegetarian dish to tone down the meatiness as well as get a greater variety of proteins into your body. Beans have so many variations and mash ki dal or urad dal is commonly used beans type in India and Pakistan. This recipe of khari mash ki daal or mash ki dany dar dal is immensely popular throughout Pakistan and is cooked with onions and spices.
We enjoy this with coriander chutney, onion salad and chappatis.
