      One of the best mung dhal I ever ate! This for sure is a keeper - what else to say! Thanks for posting. Made for Healthy Choices ABC.

      I never realised the importance and differences between the various types of dhals. I made this to the letter and it was absolutely perfect, recreating a flavor that I have tasted in so many indian restaurants and did not recognise as mung dhal. Thanks Brian. Absolute winner, served somewhat bizarrely with your sweet and sour chicken curry that was left over from previous night.
