Cherry Tomato Dal | Cooks JoyAnother simple side dish that goes well with rice/flat bread. Cherry tomatoes were in abundance in the house and the usual salads sounded boring. This dish was a welcome change to finish up the tomatoes. It is simple to make and the cherry tomatoes impart a mild sweetness and a nice flavor to the dal. Off to the recipe.
