This is a South Indian vegetarian dish that tastes fantastic with basmati rice or any Indian bread. Urad dal, also called black gram, can be found in Asian markets, but can be left out if you can't find them.
Thanks for sharing. Great recipe. Works better with real chick peas though. I've blogged my attempt here: http://www.kitchenetteadventures.asia/2012/09/chickpeas-and-red-capsicum-curry.html - 14 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
