I had this for lunch, absolutely good! Had it over hot white rice wit some dahi boondhi on the side, yummy:) My mom did think it was soup:) For myself, I kept aside a bowl of this to which I did not add the seasoning ingredients. I still loved it. For mom and dad, I did add the seasoning ingredients, but, I couldn't add the black urad dal as I didnt have it on hand. Yet,it was lovely, thank you! Note: I licked my fingers clean while making the coconut paste:)
Anu, I thought this was really good. I love spinach and it goes so well with lentils, and the coconut was a really nice accent. I did find this to be somewhat bland, thus I added fresh ginger, garlic, more cumin, and some ground coriander which I sauteed in oil before adding. Thanks for posting!
