  16. if you want a slight sour taste in the dal, then add a few drops of lemon juice or ½ tsp of amchur powder/dry mango powder towards the end. if adding dry mango powder, then stir well and allow the dal to simmer for 1 to 2 mins after adding it.
  17. garnish with coriander leaves and serve the arhar dal fry hot with steamed basmati rice or jeera rice or naan or rotis accompanied with roasted papad and a pickle or salad by side.
