Methi Garlic dhal with spring onion recipe - Dal Methi Lasooni recipe - Healthy side dish recipe

I tried this combo for the first time and loved it. Normally when I first try it out I don't take pics. I take stepwise only 2nd time if the dish is good. Some how for this one I some how felt it would turn out good. So I took pics in my first try. I love this combo. Adding spring onion give nice flavour to this gravy. This goes very well with rice or chapathi or dosa or iddyappam or idli too. Even My helper thought I was going to make 2 different dishes when I asked her to get the ingredients ready. She told me this tastes really good.
