  1. Combining the Tadka with the Dal:

– Pour the prepared tadka into the cooked dal.

– Combine thoroughly, letting the flavors harmonize.

  1. Garnishing and Serving:

– Adorn your dal tadka with a sprinkle of fresh coriander leaves.

– For an extra zing, squeeze some lemon juice over the top (optional).

  1. Enjoy Your Delicious Dal Tadka:
