    Nice basic dal. Easy. Mine cooked faster than time listed. I didn't have mustard oil, so I added some mustard seed with the nigella.

    p. 259 The book’s authors suggest that this Dal makes a good accompaniment to grilled meat and since I’d planned to make Indian-spiced grilled chicken, I knew I’d found a side dish! This was a nice, light tasting dal that was looser in consistency than dals I’ve made in the past. We served the dal warm along with some naan bread and steamed brown basmati rice for dipping, our grilled Indian-spiced chicken and the truly amazing Banana Salad from this same book. Photos here:
