several years ago, I had dal tadka at a roadside dhaba. it was so delicious, I could still remember that taste. curious to know how it was made, I asked the chef how did he make such a delicious dal. He was generous to share the recipe with me. I have remembered the dhaba and the chef every time I had made dal tadka since then :)
