Chironji Ki Dal Recipe is a different type of dal prepared with the chironji seeds, it is an almond flavored seed which is majorly used as a cooking spice in Indian cuisine. The seeds are first soaked in water to remove the shell and get only the nut which resembles a pine nut. The seed is then ground coarsely and then made into a dal. To give a different texture to the creamy dal we have also added chopped bhindi or ladies finger.

The seed helps in cooling your body so therefore can be used in order to reduce the burning sensation. The seeds are also good to build the immune system and can be included as a part of a diet for diabetics. 

Serve the Chironji Ki Dal Recipe along with Bhatura Recipe (Fried Puffed Yogurt Bread) and some Pickled Onions Recipe to make you breakfast complete.
