Ma Choliyan Di Daal(Mother'S Day)

Ma Choliyan Di Daal(Mother'S Day) - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
I have made this daal in Punjabi style by adding loads of garlic as well as onions too. This daal is the most simplest and yummiest daal. I normally make this daal when my mom comes to my house,as its her favorite and i love to cook this for her <3 Ma Choliya Di Daal can be accompanied with hot steaming rice as well as roti too but i love to have this with raw bread and some green chilies.Everyone has its own taste-buds Right? 😉
