Kids they love anything to do with chocolate, cookies ....but when it come to vegs it's so difficult to make them have something nutritious but I am lucky in that matter that when I do Sambar I add loads of vegs  both my sons have it without complaining this was one of the recipes which I was keen to try adding vegs to dal it was lovely and my sons loved it .  Thanks to Pratibha Rao akka for sharing such a lovely recipe :) Do try this I am sure you will absolutely love this ...have tried it so many times now and it's become my family fav now :)
