I heart dals, my lunch/dinner table is incomplete without a Dal taking center stage. I find that my meals are somehow not good without the reassuring comfort that a well made Dal offers. Also being an Indian, I feel that I have some sort of authority on Dal and I usually snort in my Tea when I see readymade Dal packets sold in supermarkets OR “Dal Soup” sold in restaurants. Maybe I am a bit of a “Dal Snob” because actually, you can’t teach a desi a trick or two about Dals.
Having said that it is always humbling to stumble upon new Dal recipes that you have never tried and tasted before. And it is even great when you cook it, and it blows your mind with its sheer deliciousness. I had one such humbling moment a few days ago when I stumbled upon this “Sabut Masoor Dal with Arugula” recipe on the fabulous blog @passionateaboutbaking
. I have been a silent admirer of Deeba’s blog for a while. Her pictures and her food are awe-inspiring.
Now while I cannot bake like her to save my life, I can definitely try and cook a Dal. And let me tell you this Dal has been one of the best Dals I have eaten in my life. It was deliciously buttery and creamy and tasted so good that I have made it thrice in 2 weeks and even done a variation of it with vegetables.
A recipe for a happy meal, definitely. #goodfood #goodfoods #goodfoodaustralia #goodfoodau #sydneyeats #sydney #sydneyfood #indianfood #desifood #feedme #ilovedals #dalsofinstagram #dalsofig
