Urad Dal Raita also known as Dangar was first given to me by my maternal grandma about 10 years back. As part of some general conversation she shared the recipes and urged me to try out Chakkara Holiga, Pala Poli, Pheni which are all her personal favorites even at 96 years now. 

I later found that various versions of Urad Dal Raitha were popular in different parts of India.

Recently, Dangar was on the menu on a weekend. Coincidentally since I had chosen to showcase Andhra dishes starting with D, E and F this week, this recipe came in handy. 

The crunch in the raitha was a delight to have with roti or paratha of any kind.

Featured in the meal platter is Mooli Paratha, Mango Pickle, Plain Dal, Dangar, Rice and Yogurt
