      This is so good, and it tastes exactly like the dhal soup from my favorite indian restaurant, I'm so happy I made this! My husband however, got green split peas instead of yellow...but it didn't really matter, the taste is still the same and flavorful. I added fresh lemon juice to it, and it really brightened it up...don't be scared to add a lot. I did and it made it even better. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT8.

      Wow! This soup has very simple and inexpensive ingredients, but it really packs a lot of flavor. Another bonus is that it's healthy and filling. I made this exactly as written, just adding a splash of fresh lemon juice to each bowl upon serving. This reheats well and is maybe even a little better reheated as the garlic flavor deepens. Thanx for sharing!
