Our Review Factors
Our review of Tata Sampann Dal Tadka Masala was based on the flavor, aroma, and convenience it lends in terms of packaging, preparation, and mixability.
Tadka or tempering must have a balance of spices and aromatics. It shouldn’t just be loaded with heat and oily flavors.
We were looking for the freshness of herbs like coriander, toasty flavors from cumin, and the warmth of ginger- all packed with a punch of spice.
Add and stir? Is that all? How many ingredients does this call for from the pantry? All-in-all, is this ideal for regular use?

How we made it
- Following the instructions on the pack, we cooked a combination of dal like moong, chana, and toor with some turmeric.
- Then we sauteed some garlic in ghee and added a cup of chopped onions.
- This was cooked until they turned translucent/golden.
- We then added chopped tomatoes and let them cook until the oil started to leave from the sides.
- Finally, we added one sachet to this cooked mix and let it saute for 30 seconds before adding the dal.
Tata Sampann Dal Tadka Masala had a pleasing aroma. It was masaledar, with hints of the herbs and spices used.
Heavenly! This tadka masala added a comforting flavor to the dal. This blend could not have been better. It was well-rounded and balanced. There was a slight tanginess that we liked. The spice was apt too.
There are five sachets in the carton. Each sachet holds sufficient powder to prepare six servings.
The step-by-step details are mentioned on the carton that are easy to follow. The fact that the masala dissolves easily is appreciated.
