From Recipes with a Spice - Indian Cuisine for Balanced Nutrition' by Kusum Gupta This dal is the perfect accompaniment to spicy vegetables, bread and rice. Use any kind of lentils. One of the favorites is a mix of split green & yellow Mung and split reddish Masoor. When cooked, dry dal becomes almost 4 times in volume. Serve it hot when well mixed and of semi-liquid consistency. It can be refrigerated or frozen.
