This week I choose main course from Punjab .Egg Dal Tadka which is usually found in various Punjabi dhaba all time favorite in my family. This flavorful and aromatic tadka is always go with roti or Paratha.You can add tomatoes for extra flavor but I omit tomato because sometimes my kids doesn’t like the flavor. Eggs give this recipe an extra flavor.
