Dal is a thick, creamy stew made from dried lentils, peas, and beans that have had their outer hulls removed. "Tadka" means "tempering," which is achieved by adding spicing agents like curry powder and garlic.
Tadka dal is a specialty of Northern India, a simple everyday dal dish, served with steamed white rice or rotis (indian flat breads).
