Toor Dal Curry with Burmese Samosa

Toor Dal Curry with Burmese Samosa
  • This fantastic recipe combines an ever-popular snack and a spicy soup. To begin, we make delectable samosas by deep-frying samosa pattis filled with a delectable potato, green pea, and spice mixture.
  • Using pre-made samosa patties saves time while also giving the samosas a wonderful crispness. If you're wondering what's so special about samosas, it's the tongue-tingling soup in which we'll drown it.
  • This delicious soup is made with cooked Toor dal and a special, freshly ground spice powder. Cooking the soup for 15 minutes with this spice powder allows the flavour of the spice powder to blend with the dal, giving the broth a rich and complex flavour.
  • Punit Proteins is an excellent Pulses supplier company in Gujarat.
  • To make the soup more delectable and to improve the range of textures, interesting ingredients such kala chana, purple cabbage, and bean sprouts are added.
  • Each samosa is dipped in a bowl of flavorful soup and decorated with bright toppings like spring onions and coriander just before serving. It's a satisfying snack!
