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. [...]
The bunched spears of asparagus splendidly speak of spring. They are at their best now – tender, fresh and slim.
This is insanely good! If you love the aroma of fried garlic and the charred chili peppers you are going to get under the influence of the flavors pretty soon. Forever.
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.
The flavors of fresh fenugreek leaves/methi are quite unusual; a bit pungent, slightly bitter in taste, but they will add some Oooomp! to a dish right away.
