Lentil Potato Dal

Lentil Potato Dal created by Ninniku

I don't know where I got this recipe. Dal is typically made with lentils, tomatoes, onions, and a spices. My friends in India say Dal is a staple type dish like mashed potato is to American's. This smells & tastes wonderful.

    This recipe worked well, I just made a few changes:<br/><br/>- left out the butter and salt to make it healthier (and vegan) <br/>- didn't use ginger or the red wine vinegar as I didn't have any<br/>- instead of the water and chopped tomato I used a can of chopped tomato and a bit of extra water (I found I needed to keep adding water as it simmered (even with a lid on))<br/>- used a sweet potato instead of a regular potato<br/>- added garam masala and some Japanese curry powder as they were on hand. The spice level was good - warm but not hot. <br/><br/>I made up a batch and then froze it for lunches during the week (I just add to some vegetables and rice). Very handy recipe.
