dal cutlet

All the vegetarians out there, who cannot gain proteins through fish, do not need to worry even a bit. Today, I’m here with a new and FULL OF PROTIENS recipe for you people. Introducing *Drum rolls* DAL CUTLET

I remember the first time when I made these and asked my hubby to taste it. To my astonishment, my husband fell for it so hard that HE asked for the recipe. He made me cook these each time we would have some guests, and they also, would ask for the recipe before leaving.

It took no long for this mouth watering recipe to finally take over the entire family. Whether it is tea time, or dinner, these cutlets have become a necessity in the menu of tea parties and guest dinners.

Daal contains healthy nutrients and is high in proteins which boost your health and immune system. This cutlet with taste is a jackpot of health too. With this, it is high in antioxidants which help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases and heat strokes.

Daal is rich in potassium, magnesium and fiber which can reduce blood pressure. It is also very helpful to those on a weight loss journey! It raises fullness hormones and suppresses hunger. With such benefits, you get a Tsunami of taste which is unforgettable and irreplaceable!

Dal cutlet is really very good for children who fuss over healthy and vegetarian food and is a perfect lunch box meal for them. You will see how their taste buds will finally start to love this dish.

It blends in perfectly as a side dish. You can add other vegetables into this as well like peas or pieces of carrots but since I’m highly promoting the original taste of dal in it I haven’t used any other vegetable.
