Kaale Chane ka Khatta from Himachal Pradesh

BM # 20   Day 2

 Yesterday , I made a special dish from the Kangra Dham, since Dham has so many dishes, I have decided to make one more dish from this beautiful valley.For today, the second day of daals I have made KhattaKhatta, means sour.So the basic flavor of the dish is slightly on the sour side, which if you don't want can be mellowed..In the valley they make  meat also in the same way.
