I was in the mood for some veggie-packed dal! I love the natural food store right around the corner!
I usually cook dal Jain-style, with no garlic or onion, but I had both sitting in the pantry and going to waste.
Here's the ghee-fried tarka being added to the dal. This is the best smelling part of the cooking process!
The finished dal, served with basmati and full-fat, cream top yogurt. Mmmm!
