Khatti Dal (Telugu: కట్టీ దాల్, Urdu: کھٹی دال‎) is a food originating in South Asia and central to Hyderabadi cuisine. It is a type of dal made using Masoor dal or Toor dal. The Urdu word khatti (کھٹی) literally means "sour".[1] It refers to the tangy taste which is essential to the dish brought about by adding tamarind. Khatti dal is typically served with rice and other meat or vegetable dishes.
