dali toye recipe

dali toye recipe with step by step pics. dali toye is a simple but comforting dal that i do make on occasions. dali tove is one of the staple dishes from the gowd saraswat brahman community (GSB). there are some variations in preparing dali toy which differs from family to family.

this is such an easy to make and simple dal where not many ingredients are used like a dal fry or dal tadka. the minimal ingredients bring out the taste and flavor of tuvar dal in the recipe.

dali toye is best served with steamed rice. i also accompany a side veggie stir fried dish or crispy veggie fries like yam fry or tendli fry or potato fry or plantain fry.

usually ghee is used for tempering, but you can also use oil. when i make dali toye, we like its flavors best with ghee or coconut oil. so i use either of them. you can even use oil like sunflower or peanut oil. i also do not add dry red chilies while tempering, but you can add them.
