Panchkuti Dal or Panchmel dal or Panchratan Dal is a delectable combination of five lentils cooked together with the minimal spices. The Panchkuti Dal is a dish included in a Rajasthani meal of Dal-Baati-Churma. Dal-Baati-Churma is a meal in itself. The Dal used here is the Pachkuti Dal. The meal is served during the celebration times, be it marriages or festivals. The Dal is simmered in ghee where cumin seeds are fried and flavoured with bay leaves and fresh coriander leaves. The simplicity of the Dal is protein rich and taste is splendid.
