      I've never had this before so i have no basis for comparison, but I declare this dish absolutely delicious.

      Excellent. I used a bit less oil and a combo of half and half/plain yogurt instead of cream and it turned out fine.

      This was great! Took me back to my grandma's kitchen growing up. I messed it up a bit with 2 things. One, I went a bit crazy with the fat-free half and half I decided to use. Turned the dal the most awful shade of puce or something. But, that didn't affect the taste. The other thing I did is I froze it for a ready-made meal. I don't think it froze well. I will surely make this again (this weekend in fact) and will eat it fresh. I may consider upping the spices a little, but it is very good as is.
