Srilankan Dal Recipe is a creamy rich spicy dal made with split masoor dal. The dal is just flavored with two very strong ingredients and still feels flavorful. The pound fenugreek seeds and whole peppercorns lifts the flavor of the dal, what make it more rich and comforting is the addition of coconut milk into the dal. The dish is made in a pressure cooker, making it a one pot.

Serve the Srilankan Dal Recipe along with Steamed Rice, Cabbage Thoran (Poriyal) Recipe and Carrot Cucumber Tomato Salad with Lemon and Coriander by the side.
