Dal is a fabulous East Indian dish. It is, essentially, a lentil stew. It
typically has the consistency of a very thick soup. It often looks like
baked beans except the lentils are smaller than beans. What makes it so
good is the flavour. I love Indian food for the exotic flavours. There
are lots of good Indian eateries in my area and great availability of
Indian ingredients, even in the supermarkets.
I have found many online recipes for Dal but I wanted to get a recommended
recipe. I find that foreign foods can be difficult to cook properly and it
helps to get the recipe from someone outside of that ethnic group so you
will get the "For Dummies" version of the recipe.
