It’s so simple. You just put the lentils in a small pan with your garlic and cardamom pods, a couple of cloves, some ginger, then cover it all with water and bring to a simmer. Then let it sit for like half an hour. Maybe stir it a couple of times.
It’s so simple and relaxing I did it last night when I got home at nearly 9 pm. I’m doing it again right now, at 6:30 am. I don’t really need to making this second batch; the one I made last night, though small, will probably be enough for the office “pot luck” today. But I have more lentils, and I have the spices. The rest is water. Why wouldn’t you make another batch?
It’s a gift to do the thing that makes you happy.
One thought on “Dal The Way”
It’s a gift indeed, Rocky — and as you can guess by now, writing is something that makes me happy. Can you make this recipe without garlic? That doesn’t make me happy at all. But thanks for the incentive to do more cooking for later.
