Sprouted Navaratna dal with Paneer Curry | Paneer Navaratna Lentil Curry

>>  Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Today's lunch box recipe is about sprouted Navaratna dal which also featured Paneer. This makes a great side dish along with Chapatis for carrying to work and is really hassle free. Adding sprouted dals makes this even more healthy.

Here's for a quick post today as it's been a hectic day and couldn't find time to do anything else.

I love anything with paneer (I even make a paneer bread pudding) but I have never seen the sprouted dals before. Going to have to look if I can find those.
