Lahori Dal (split Red Lentils Cooked In Lahori Style)
This dal is quite simple, elegant and rich. I love it for its garlicky flavour and it is mildly spiced making it ideal for my kiddo. The origin of this dal is from the region of Punjab and today this is a recipe India shares with its neighboring country -Pakistan. I learned this recipe from a Punjabi friend of mine whose parents hailed from Lahore. I still can't get it like the way her mother did. I tasted this dal 18 years ago and I can still taste this dal every time I close my eyes. My hubby loves chatpata dal so he does not like mild versions like this but it can be a great accompaniment with rotis and a spicy stir fry.
