This is my second recipe of “mash ki dal ke bare”,this recipe is a bit different from the previous one but very tasty and finger licking. My Elder Sister In Law, Madiha Nauman is expert in making these dahi bhalla.I personally like these bhallas with sweet and spicy tamarind sauce and chat masala.Thanks to her for giving me such a nice recipe.
