At my place, in every wedding Moradabad Dal has to be in the menu and there are special cooks who come from Moradabad to cook this delicacy. I don't know why my mother made it at home and at every wedding we all use to relish Muradabadi Dal. When I say it has to be in the wedding menu I mean to say in the starters menu, not main course, yes it is enjoyed as a starter, appetizer or snack whatever you like to call it but I have never seen this dal as part of main course.
