About Urad and Chana Dal mixed

In Indian cuisine, whole and grounded lentils are extensively used to prepare numerous dishes and confectionaries. For example, the Urad Chana dal recipe in Punjabi is called" maa choliyan di dal." 'Maa' or 'Maah 'can be translated as Black Gram or Urad Dal, and choli is translated as Bengal gram (Chana dal).

Many delicious Indian Dal recipes mix two or more different varieties of lentils. For example, the Rajasthani Panchmel Dal and Gujarati Trevti Dal use an amalgamation of five or more different locally grown lentils. 

The Punjabi split Urad Dal recipe is one finer example of a flavorful lentil recipe that combines two different variants tempered with minimum spices.

However, depending on the local preparation standards and preferences, a fair amount of other ingredients like onion, ginger, garlic and green chillies are used. As a result, the Dal has a thick texture and a slightly sweet taste.
