There’s something incredibly comforting this time of year (or anytime for that matter) about a warming bowl of dal. The combination of herbs and spices (asafoetida, turmeric, chile powder, cumin seeds, garam masala, and curry leaves) along with fresh ingredients (onions, tomatoes, fresh ginger, and garlic) make this dish come alive.
Sometimes the guessing game of making a dish can be fun. Without too many guidelines, improvisation and tweaking can create an entirely new dish made specially by you!
