Dahl are dry pulses (lentils, beans, peas) used very commonly in India and that also make a dish under the same name.
That’s a very simple one that I made for you, recipes coming directly from Kovalam, south west of India after this very sprirtually and physically fulfilling trip that I had the chance to take.
The word dal is coming from the Sanskrit “to split”.
Pigeon pea, black chickpeas, yellow split peas, mung beans (very popular in Bengladesh, urad dal also called black gram used to make dosa in south India… Bori, dal makhani..Every region of India and every corner of Asia has its own version….
This one is colourful, tasty and so simple… 10 min are enough
Please enjoy the quick process, the smell in your kitchen and the result for very little effort, Namaste !
