Chana dal goes best with steamed rice , raita and roti/paratha.. while preparing chana dal ,make sure that dal is soft enough.

you can soak dal for an hour before boiling. You can use a pressure cooker to boil dal and can even use a pan but it takes time.I always use a pressure cooker to boil dal.
