Broccoli Channa Dal Rice | Cooks JoyLentils jazz up any dish for me and this rice is no exception. Plain broccoli sounded boring, but lentils got me all excited to try out rice with broccoli. If you are not a broccoli fan, use any vegetable of choice. The rice is easy to put together and everyone in the family loved it. Off to the recipe.
