I did variation in this recipe by making spiced stuffed green chilies that give a  little sourness to the dal chicken curry that I used in tempering_also this dish has a whole lot of flavor captured in just one pot. The addition of spices has created complex flavors in the dish_Did you know: Whole Masoor Dal contains a high level of proteins and is also rich in fiber. It also falls into an antioxidant property also.

Making dal gosht in Pakistani families is very common just like moong dal goshtdal chana gosht but this recipe is quite different than those recipes..this is cooked in chicken yakhni that brought some unique taste of this curry_goes well with boiled rice.bagara rice and zeera rice. Just try once and I believe all of you love this recipe
