Lentil Dal, an oxymoron literally meaning lentil, is an Indian comfort food you can easily make at home. It is a layered dish, so you can’t just dump ingredients into your slow cooker and forget it like so many other soups and stews, but following this recipe will give you delicious home cooked Indian food in no time. The secret is the tadka, an almost deep frying of spices with ghee, or clarified butter. This is added to the dish at the end to give it that spice and flavor burst.
- Dal is a thick or thin soup made from lentils and tempered spices from South Asia
- Tempering spices should be done in clarified butter slowly so as to not burn the spices
- Dal is best served with rice or flatbread depending on the thickness
“Two components are essential to dal: tender lentils and tempered spices.”
