Take a look! Man, I was up 'til 2:30 this morning finishing that thing. I'm still surprisingly bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this morning. Ha!
This week, a subject you loyal readers know I'm obsessed with at the moment: lentils! This time, a more traditional dal recipe that I grew up with. It's a soupier version that you can eat on its own, or yes you guessed it, over rice. You can also spice it up with a green serrano chili or two. I didn't, because of Bren's delicate-flower constitution. Love you ba!
We're using red lentils (masoor dal) and split pigeon peas (toor dal) in this recipe. If you'd like to simplify, just use the red ones. Other specialty ingredients: curry leaves (of course! I know! I have a problem!), turmeric and asfoetida powder.
I'll put the recipe up a little later.
