dal switch

may not be an altogether new switch.
while making rasam, we used masoor dal instead of toor dal.
was very good. and masoor cooks much faster.
try it.

masoor cooks better for sure, you can smash it to a paste.
My suggestion is go 50-50 with toor and masoor.
Masoor will give a nice consistency and toor will give its unique flavor.

good idea.
but have to cook them separately as they cook at different speeds!!

I wash and cook them together. In a pressure cooker. You can cook them acc the toor dal timing, no fear of overcooking the masoor.
