Dal has always been the classic comfort food.
This is my everyday Dal. A warm fragrant bowl with a drizzle of lemon juice soothes and coddles like old socks when I am sick in bed. The hissing of the pressure cooker speaks of homecoming and the emitting aroma welcomes us back after a long vacation. [...]
Of all the infinite ways that Dal is cooked in India, this happens to be just another one; hearty and laden with the warm, distinct aroma of garlic. Quite popular, mostly in the northern regions of India, the flavors here are deep and rich.
Piping hot semolina with tender medley of vegetables and some spicy chutney is the way to break that fast on a cold and frosty morning.
