Mixed bell pepper & Carrot dal

This dal is very simple and anyone will know it and not a unique dish and all.. I had this last weekend in my aunts house and really enjoyed it., no masalas or tadka were added to this.. just the real flavor and aroma of Ginger,bell peppers, and mashed dal.. simply loved it.. I added jalapeños.. which is an option. You can very well skip and just use only pepper powder. Jump on to the recipe.
