Sukhi Chana Dal Dried split chickpeas Recipe
Sukhi Dal is also called Dal Fry, popular in Punjab. Sukhi means dry, dish is not soupy
I have chosen Chana Dal. In reality, you can use the same technique with Dhuli Moong Dal (Split decorticated Moong Beans), Tuar Dal (Pigeon peas), or Split Masoor (Split Lentil). You can also use a combination of these pulses.
