Green chutney Dal recipe | How to make dal using green chutney

         I had already written in my last post about how handy green chutney is and how many recipes it can be used apart from from regular chats. Its also one way to preserve the mint and coriander leaves you buy because they tend to wilt within a few days.

         Sometimes, my days are really busy and the younger one does not allow me to cook at all. But I have to keep the lunch ready before the elder one returns from school. So that when the green chutney comes in so handy for me. I sometimes make a quick one pot pulao with the green chutney paste or make a simple dal like this one. Its very quick to make and it tastes great too with so many flavours in it. Try it and do tell me how you liked it.
