    1. 1
      Drain dal; rinse; combine dal with the 3 cups water, turmeric and oil in a medium saucepan; heat to boiling, cover and cook until dal are cooked through but not mushy, about 30 minutes- the dal should absorb most of the water.
    2. 2
      Stir in garlic, ginger, cumin, garam masala, salt, red pepper, butter and half-and-half; heat to boiling over medium heat; cook, stirring frequently, until mixture thickens and flavors blend, about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Serve over cooked rice; garnish with cilantro and ginger.

      This recipe is filling and tasty. It goes well with naan. I made some changes by adding some dried kidney beans (1/4 of a pound) along with the black urad and cooking it with 5 cloves of garlic with plenty of water in a pressure cooker. I also omitted the garam masala and added only the ground cumin, red chilli powder and salt, along with adding one chopped tomato, thinly sliced onion and fat-free half and half. It was better the next day after it sat in the refrigerator-thank you Hey Jude for sharing this recipe.
