Dal is a traditionally Indian dish that has a tendency to look a little different depending on whose home you’re in. It’s kind of like tomato sauce in Italy. Every family has “their” recipe and it’s the best one you’ll ever have, according to them, anyway.
These are the kinds of recipes that I love. They are rustic and homey and so, so comforting. I may not have any Mideast or Asian genes in me (but really who knows these things?), but I can still appreciate all the feels that this dish brings. It was a welcome comfort after the wild weekend and stressful week that happened last week….
