vegetable Dhal cha

Dhal Cha is actually prepared and served in weddings (nikkah) with biriyani or ghee rice...dhal cha is purely made out of meat bones and vegetables .i have modified with my own proportion and made it with only vegetables and we can have it with plain rice also ..instead of usual sambar we can have this vegetable masala sambar...very rich and tasty...
