Meal Idea: Achari Paratha & Sabut Moong Dal with lachcha pyaaz

Dal is comfort food. We all find it easy and simple to prepare. And if there is no side dish, the best way to serve dal is with paratha and some simple yet zingy salad, and a meal for a busy weekday or at the end of a tiring weekday is ready. Achari paratha is the favourite paratha of my family because it bursts with all those pickley flavors. It is super simple to make achari masala paratha with the achari masala in hand. Whole dals are far more nutritious than the slit and skinned ones. Sabut moong dal has been made absolutely spicy and savoury so that it can be included in the diet more often. And the dhaba style lachcha pyaaz takes care of the rest. Do try this combination, you will like it.

Likewise, you might also like other meal ideas such as the simple Gujarati meal, sooji idli with besan ki kadhi. These are simple and quick, different yet delicious meal ideas for the weekdays.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
