Mung Bean and Kale Daal

Packed with nutrition, this Mung Bean and Kale Daal is such a tasty wholesome meal. It can be served in two ways.

You could also swirl a little bit of cream and enjoy it as soup with the bread of your choice. I have tried both the versions of Mung Bean and Kale Daal. They both taste equally comforting and so good!

One of the most common flat bread preparation is stuffed paratha, which I am still struggling with, but stuffed poori with lentil is something I managed to learn faster.
