I am trying to post my best DAL RECIPES for this day as it inspires Me to dig in my Family History & write about these dals which are so commonly made that you actually forget to document them !!!!
CHOLA Dal / CHAWLI in Gujarti or LOBIA in Hindi …. is Black Eyed Beans in English
Not many people know that this Dal is widely made in Gujarat…It is mostly known as a North Indian Dal… LOBIA is a favorite Dish…
CHOLA NI DAL is made in a very simple way as the beans themselves have a great Flavour & Taste….. As with other beans these too are highly nutritious & full of Protein…. Store these at Room temperature & make sure to soak them at least for 3/4 hours if you want the actual flavours… If you do not soak them then you need to pressure cook it for a longer time…This can be had as a One Meal Dish.. just with some Indian Bread or Rice….It is Deliciousness personified !!!
So let’s get started with the CHOLA NI DAL RECIPE…
U need —–
1 cup CHOLA/ CHAWLI / LOBIA/ Black Eyed Beans presoaked
1 chopped tomato
2 teaspoons oil / ghee
