Dahl is a staple in India, usually eaten with every meal. My family always eats Dahl when we make Indian food. This is a new recipe for Dahl made and demonstrated by Cinda Sanders on a cooking show titled "Indian Cuisine."

This is a sold dish. I did alter it a bit: I omitted peas, and I only used one can of diced tomatoes and one can of chickpeas I also added a heaping teaspoon and a half of minced garlic I also added salt to it to bring the garlic forth.
