Nice easy recipe! It has a gentle flavor. I served with rice and mango lassi, and we quite enjoyed the meal. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 50
3 1/2 stars. This is bland without salt as stated by another reviewer. I added sea salt to taste but still felt a flavour was missing. I used butter, Garam Masala - Aromatic Kashmiri Spice Blend for Spicy Cooking! and ginger powder. I made ours into soup by adding some vegetable stock along with the water but I did taste it as dhal first so I am rating this based on both versions. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.
Loula, I made this recipe as written and found it to be a little bland. The addition of a pinch of chilli flakes, the juice of half a lemon and a generous teaspoon of salt really lifted the flavours and I was very happy with the finished dish. I often see people complain that for all the spices a curry dish is bland and I think they forget to season it (curry spices cry out for salt in my opinion).
Spicy good! I did add cilantro to my individual dish. DH doesn`t like it. Thanks
A nice Dhal. The spices are balanced with out being overpowering. Made a nice dinner served with Naan bread and had enough left for the next day's lunch. Had to make one very small change which was to use brown lentils as could not find red ones. Thanks so much for the post.
