Now now...what did you think I meant 😁

Dhall is one of my favourite things to eat when I fancy something simple, tasty and light. This Gujarati Style Tarka Dhall, packs in all the yummy homely tones you'd expect from a Dhall and is a proper healthier version of its cousin the 'Makhni Dhall'... which of course, I like once in a while too!

Treat yourself to a portion of goodness with a simple chopped salad and some Gujarati 'Bhakri'
