OMELETTE DHAL


This is a combination of dhal and omelette.Good combination for crisp

bread,chappathis and rice too.

You can use boiled(halved) poached in place of omelette.

You could bake eggs with a little mix of milk,cut into cubes and add to dhal

for a variation.This will look like pieces of paneer.So do try and post in

your suggestions and comments.
