    1. 1
      Place the dal in a large saucepan and stir over medium heat until dry. Add the oil, chiles de arbol, garam masala, feugreek & asafoetida and cook stirring until the dal is golden, about 3 minutes Reduce heat if too much smoke arises. Add ginger, garlic, serrano peppe, coriander & paprika and stir for another 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add water and salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Recuce heat to low, cover pan, and cook stirring occasionally, until the dal is soft & creamy, about 1 hr, adding more water if it dies too quickly. Mix in the tomatoes and cook until they are quite soft, about 5 minutes Transfer to a serving dish, mix in the cilantro and serve.

      Excellent! Very tasty. I will definitely make it again. Excellent on "Indian Spiced Rice" Recipe. Since I did not have garam masala, I found a recipe to make it using 3 tbs black peppercorns, 1.5 tbs black cumin seeds (charnushka), 8 cardamom pods, 4" stick of cinnamon, 1 tsp nutmeg (recipe I had said whole nutmeg, but I did not have one), and 2 star anise. I put it in my small food processor and then stored it in a jar.

      YUM! This was so easy! I checked after 30 minutes & the lentils were cooked but there was a LOT of liquid left. So I took off the lid & raised the heat. The 4 of us ate it all. :) Thank you for a yummy supper! :)
