Bengali mix veg dal

About this recipe:-

Bengali Mix veg dal is one of a Bengali vegetarian recipe, which is usually made at any ceremony house and served with rice, or at any get-together. At my house it is made during winter days cause at that time all the veggies which are used in it are widely available and fresh.

This Dal is tasted so good that whenever it is made in my house I finish my full plate of rice just with this. It's quite filling dish cause it has many vegetables in it, that make the dal thicker and one ball of it can keep you full for long.

It's a great option for an Indian vegetarian dinner, you can have it with roti or with rice as well. Or if you are on a diet you can have one bowl of this dal without any roti or rice.

Lentils are called dal in Bengali. We usually cook lentils as a soup but for using so many veggies, mix dal gets thicker and quite filling.

Usually, moong dal is used here for mixed veg dal, it has a good amount of protein and fiber and other minerals also. And from the veggies which are used here, this dal is full of nutrients and very healthy.
