Mark Bittman wrote a great piece for the Times today called Dal Five Ways, with five completely delicious looking recipes. I've embarrassed to admit that not only have I never tried dal (or dahl), but before today I didn't know what it was. And as I'm always on the lookout for versatile meatless recipes, I went into research mode and found even more dal recipes. Here are my top contenders:
Ginger and Spice Dahl
Yellow Split Pea Dahl Recipe with Potatoes and Coconut Milk
I'm going to have to choose one of the eight contenders before I hit the grocery store this afternoon. The question is, how?
