- Do not over cook Dal
- Adding oil & Turmeric to dal while cooking helps to cook dal quicker
- In the last step : while adding chilli powder to the tempering,make sure the flame is on slow speed or turn off the flame, if the oil is too hot. Doing this it doesn’t burn red chilli powder and helps to retain bright red colour
