    Phil!'s Note:

    This is one of my favorite dhal recipes; it's tasty and very nutritious. I eat it over rice as a main dish. It also makes a good side dish; in that case, double the servings. Originally from _Curried Favors_.

      We were very pleased with this recipe! For us though, it was only 2 servings. I left out all spicy things, replacing the cayenne with chili powder, and used the bay leaves instead of the curry leaves... I personally put cayenne pepper on mine which was a great addition, and both my husband and I added a little more salt. As we were eating, my husband thought tomatoes would be good with it, so we diced up some fresh tomatoes and ate those with it, which was great as well! We will definitely be making this again; thanks for sharing, Phil!
