Daal Chawal with a dollop of hot "Desi Ghee" that begins to melt after landing on the plate spreading its yellow amber liquid and drenching the rice.

I think there is not a single Pakistani that doesn’t like Daal chawal. Eid is over and we had a lot of spicy food so we can have our very own traditional daal chawal.
