We usually mix 2-3 different lentils including the Urad daal and it gives it a nice texture as well.

Use masoor dal instead of toor dal. It will taste VERY GOOD. Put little mint leaves while cooking. It will spread nice favour / smell full house.

add garam masala before. Also the masalas added are very less can add, more herbs and spices , add more variety of dals like moong, red dal etc
