Simple Tomato Dal

(Click image for enlarged view)

This is a very simple n flavorful dal to prepare. It can be had with rice n rotis and it is one of my favorite dal. There are many variations by changing the dal/lentil. I used mung dal but you can also use toor dal or masoor dal. You can try all the variations n I am sure you will the notice the difference but all are tasty.
