Jat Pat Curry (Tomato Moong dal & Carrot Fry )

Jut Pat curry is very easy to cook, not much of ingredients needed either. I have tried Simple Moond dal with tomatoes and carrots fry.

These two dishes does not take much of your time and it does contain rich source of proteins and other minerals. It boost energy and keeps you full for a long time.
I have used Moond dal and tomatoes for dal and carrots and green chilly with and coriander leaves for both the dishes.
