Tarka | A Punjabi Dal

Tarka is one of my favourite dish.After a long term experiment I come to know the secret of Tarka Recipe.
A different flavour was coming from the Restaurant Made one. I was still searching.But at last I found it. Really after a long experimentation I came to know that original flavours are hiding in the Kasuri Methi, Roasted Cumin and Coriander powder actually. And it was clicked. Everyone said that something is different whenever You are making Tarka.And really its taste good. It will be more Flavoured if you want to make like charcoal technique. Once you try You will be addicted. This Tarka will go Very nice with Roti or Paratha both.
Now Take a look into Tarka Recipe Now.I Hope you will Like it...
