About Corn Malka Dal Recipe: The red lentils or malka dal also known as dhuli masoor ki dal is a hearty mixture of red lentils tempered with spices. Malka dal can be enjoyed with rice, roti, and even bread.

Corn Malka Dal | (Sweetcorn+Capsicum+Brinjal+Pink Lentils+Gluten Free)

In raw form, malka is pretty reddish-orange in color but when cooked it turns yellow. After cooking, its texture appears to same that of the yellow moong dal but they are totally different in taste.

When I cook this dal, I add some veggies to make it more interesting, healthy, and full of nutrients. I personally like corn-malka dal but my kids always demand malka with potato, corn, and brinjal/eggplant.
