I frequently make "masoor dal" according to the recipe in Shanta Nimbark Sacharoff's "Flavors of India" cookbook. It is a fairly standard dal recipe; I'm sure any dal would work. I serve it with brown basmati rice. This is a recipe I invented to use up some leftover dal and rice. I was pleased that dal is so conducive to a southwestern flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Halve peppers lengthwise; stem, seed, devein. Arrange peppers in baking dish, open sides up.
  3. Combine all other ingredients in a separate dish.
  4. Fill peppers with mixture.
  5. Bake 15 minutes or until peppers are soft and stuffing is heated throughout.
  6. If desired, provide a bowl of grated cheddar cheese for topping. My kids prefer their peppers with cheese on top. I like mine just fine without it.
