4.50 from 2 votes

Karayal is a pulse based recipe, which is made from urad dal or moong dal paste, dal pakodi cooked in dal gravy with spices. Karayal mostly famous in UP, Bihar and Northern India. I often cook vadi and moong dal ki mangodi at home.
Whenever I prepare the dal to make vadi or mangodi, i often cook karayal for dinner or lunch. Karayal with rice tastes delicious speacily during late winters. It can also be consumed with chapati and lemon onion salad, which enhances its taste even more
