Fried Daal is a lentil soup in the Kerala style

There are several options for preparing this dish. I will talk about North Indian and South Indian ways of Fried Daal. Let’s start with the fact that daal is most often a lentil soup with spices in milk. Or it can be considered both a side dish and a sauce for the main course and tortillas.
