    KateL's Note:

    Entered for ZWT. From Madhur Jaffrey's "World Vegetarian". After the pigeon paste has been prepared using Pigeon Pea Paste (Aka Arhar Dal or Toovar Dal) #483388, the hulled and split pigeon peas are always cooked with a little turmeric. Salt is added at the very end. Again, this recipe is a launching pad for the Indian stew of the day. Once cooked, lightly boiled or sauteed vegetables may be added. For Indian dishes, a final tarka is also added unless feeding the sick, the elderly or young children.
