If we use pressure cooker, adding dal, red chillipower n turmeric and then cooking it for 3 whistles adds to taste than cooking on stove n adding plain dal at the end, to rest of the ingredients.

sanjay, i have observed that using garlic in different variations give different taste.
1. cut pieces or chopped garlic
2. garlic paste
3. just crush the garlic with its coating(outer skin)
and then add to oil to fry.
what is your opnion?
one more thing, we dont have to rate your receipes and its usefulness or , your videos or anything.. u are awesome !!!
