Red Lentil Curry with vegetable (Sabji Dal)

This Sabji Dal is the perfect combination of healthy and deliciousness. I prepared it with red lentils and vegetables. Perfect to use your leftover veggies in the fridge. Some onion, ginger-garlic paste and just a little bit of spice make this dal so delightful!

 It has a creamy texture and thick consistency. I usually make this dish to eat with some hot Chapatis. But you can also prepare it lighter like a soup. Tastes so good.
