Dal Ka Dulha Recipe | Dal-e-Bahar

I have been sharing regional specialities on my blog like the Sidu Recipe from Himachal Pradesh, Daal Baati from Rajasthan, Kadhi from Gujrat, Punjabi Chhole and many more. Daal Ka Dulha is a regional speciality of Uttar Pradesh.

It simply a dish where we use wheat flour dough and give it a pasta like shape (or whatever you desire) dumpling in red lentil soup.

I don’t know about the history of how it got its name as Daal Ka Dulha but it’s something you are really going to remember.  If you are bored with you regular dal, try this recipe and I am sure you are going to love it. Follow my easy recipe with step by step pictures.
