Mix Pulses in Sour Green Masala Curry / Mix Dal Khatta Hara Masala Curry Mei.....
As extreme Summer is in... I don't feel like cooking, neither there is any appetite. Only thing I feel like is either have some thing tangy or some thing cool to drink. I has some pre soaked mix pluses and few green small size mangoes. So made this tangy curry to have it with rice, roti or paratha. Tasted quite tangy.... give it a try for yourself.
