Hyderabadi Khatti Dal Recipe (Hyderabadi Tangy Lentil Curry)

Hyderabadi Khatti Dal is a delicious tangy dal preparation tempered with curry leaves, mustard seeds, cumin, dry red chilies and garlic having balanced flavour of sourness and spiciness. Hyderabadi khatti dal couples up beautifully with steamed rice, pickle, side with any dry veggie preparation. Although we have used Toor dal, you can use even Masoor dal (red lentils) for making this Khatti dal. Traditionally for sourness, tamarind pulp is used but you can substitute it with lemon juice too. But, the sourness that elevates this dal’s flavour is best with tamarind making it the best khatti dal ever.

Serve the Hyderabadi Khatti Dal along with Steamed Rice, Kathirikai Roast (brinjal roast) and papad.
