    Maggie in Florida's Note:

    I found this recipe in an old Indian Cookbook that was loaned to me by a co-worker many years ago. I have changed the amounts and some of the ingredients to suit our taste, so it is not quite like the original recipe, but our family likes it this way. I serve it sometimes as a side to a traditional meal, but if I feel ambitious, I make it for an all Indian meal that most of our family enjoys. My vegetarian son and DIL eat it as a main meal. You can use any dal, but I prefer the orange color for this dish. This makes a large amount and can be easily halved.

    1. 1
      In a medium size saucepan, bring dal to a boil, and gently boil for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do not add S & P at this time as salt toughens dal. Season to taste after cooking is done.
    2. 2
      In a large skillet, while dal is cooking, saute' onions, garlic, and tomatoes in oil, till onions are soft and most of the liquid is absorbed.
    3. 3
      During the last 10 minutes of boiling the dal, add the reserved tomato liquid to it.
    4. 4
      When dal is cooked and most of the liquid is absorbed, combine the onion mixture with the dal and cook together for another 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Your dal is now ready. Season to taste.
