Plain Toor Dal (Yellow Lentil Curry)

Toor dal has a mild, nutty flavor and is cooked as a routine Indian dish. Toor dal is highly nutritious, high in protein, and contains vitamin A and vitamin C. Cooking this dal is very very easy.. If you are in hurry or dont have enough time to cook anything, then this dal is the best option to cook and serve with Rice or Roti. It  taste also delicious when we give tadka of Green chilli and Garlic clove's.. I love cooking this version of dal because it takes minimum time... Here is the recipe!!!!
