Cooked rice when stored in the refrigerator tends to become dry2. DalCooked lentils or dals when not stored properly may turn rancid and may have a pungent smell. Remember to not keep the container of dal outside for long as it may only invite the bacteria to ruin the dish completely. As soon as you are done serving the dal, put it in the refrigerator with a tight lid on. Refrigerated leftover dals can survive for 5-6 days only if it is stored correctly. Even if you want to eat some of it, make sure you take out only that portion, rather than re-heating the whole container. This can easily cause the bacteria to multiply sooner.
