Buta dali khakaru is a very sought after dal dish from the Odiya kitchen. This dal is always loved and cherished in my state. Buta dali Khakaru has the most amazing taste of spicy lentils blended with sweet-ness of pumpkin. It is nutritious and a wholesome dish. It goes very well with rice or puri. This dal always comes in handy with limited pantry staples.
