Mughlai Mix Daal

Mughlai Mix Daal


If you ask me about best history of an kingdom, i would definitely say Mughals because what i have read about the empires throughout history i have learnt one thing about Mughals and that is love and respect they gave to people of their kingdom was unreal. You can walk through the nations they ruled and you will find buildings telling you how good they were. Taj Mahal will tell you what they thought about love, Wells dug during their time will tell you what they thought about poor and Grand Trunk road from Dehli to Kabul will tell you how great leaders they were. Their respect for other religions was unreal and that is the reason their kingdom was free to practice any religion and they were ruling over religions, cultures and societies more then anyone before them and since. If we just talk about just one topic of life we will respect them for what they have given us, Food one of the most important topic of any culture, society or nation, and Mughals have given us from delicious to healthy recipes and today i am going to share the recipe which is both, delicious and healthy.


Daal (lentil) has several benefits including the fact that it is nutritious. Lots of vitamins are found in daal, extremely rich in soluble fiber which forms a gel-like substance in the digestive tract. Like all of their food recipes Mughals used lentils in their diet like non others and made use of this natural disease fighter. If you like it please do use comment box below and do not forget to subscribe our site to get new recipes everyday, we don't just share the recipes from around the world, we dig the history for you to bring some of the best recipes for you and we bring the memories of ancient life into your kitchen.
