This Indian dal (sometimes spelt dhal) is made with red lentils and red onion. It's flavoured with fresh ginger, coriander, turmeric and cumin. It has the consistency of a thick soup which makes bread the perfect accompaniment.
my first time to make lentils and it was perfect !! thank you so much for this recipe. - 22 Oct 2011
This recipe was well written and concise. My S.O. and I found it a delight with all the exotic spices. I did make a few small changes such as adding a stalk of chopped celery, a bit of organic vegetable boullion and for his enjoyment, a chopped, browned, italian sausage. Great job, Melanie! - 08 Apr 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This rocks! I added 4 additional garlic cloves, a little extra of each spice, one jalapeno, and one dried thai chili 'cause I like it spicy! Used canola oil because I didn't have ghee, neglected to add the cilantro, and added two roma tomatoes for variety. Will be making this VERY frequently from now on. Ate w/ homemade roti and mango chutney! - 09 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
