Dal Bukhara Recipe | Chilka Urad dal | Whole Urad dal Masala | Split Black Gram Dal Tadka | Side Dish for Roti

Legumes play huge role in south indian kitchen. Specially we telugu people uses toordal.urad dal,yellow moong dal and green moong beans almost daily in kitchen.Along with these I started using whole black urad dal regularly nowadays which is very healthy and protein packed. lentil based dishes are great as sidedish in our Indian's  houses.
There are three different types of urad dals.. whole black urad which is used to make the popular Dal Makhani, white urad dal and the split black urad which is used in this recipe.All three urad dals have a significant difference in taste and currently iam using two types of dals at home often.

Coming to this recipe it is a gravy type dish which cooked on onion tomato base,spices along with split black urad (urad chilka). It is rich in protein and fiber.This highly nutritious dal is full of flavors and can be a satisfying wholesome meal when served with roti, rice or naan.
