Dal Kaanda

Dal kaanda is a spicy maharastrain dal which makes use of goda masala and is a great accompaniment to rice or roti.I had it for the 1st time when i was visiting my inlaws and loved this dal. In their house majority of the cooking was done on wood fire and it surely does impart a different flavor to the dish as well.
