For me daal is comfort food and whenever I come back from vacation or not feeling well than daal chawal is the food I want. Few days back I wanted to have daal and chawal but somehow was not in a mood for regular daals that we make so I made mix roasted yellow daal. It turned out truly delicious and something different to have when you are bored with regular  daal. Quick & easy recipe if you are craving for simple home food.
