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
Too thick was more like lentil paste than lentil soup. - 04 Mar 2018
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)
