Directions: How to Cook Bright Yellow Dal

Date: Fri, 1 Mar 1996 16:53:18 -0800

From: Dave Karpinski Bright Yellow Dal, as prepared at Dr. Gabe Mirkin's Fat Free Clinic: Dal is a thick puree of spiced lentils or split peas that can be yellow, orange, green or brown depending on the legume you choose. Serve it with a green salad and pita bread, or combine it with other Indian-inspired dishes for a multi-course ethnic feast.

Bring all ingredients except the cilantro to a boil in a large pot and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes. Stir frequently during the last half of the cooking time. Remove from the heat and stir briskly with a whisk or large spoon to mash the lentils or split peas into a creamy puree. (You can use a blender if you want a really smooth dal, but I find the hand-mashed version more interesting.) Stir in the cilantro and sprinkle a little on top for garnish. 6-8 servings.
