    Lalaloula's Note:

    This spicy dhal recipe comes from Family Circle's Fast Vegetarian Cookbook, which I received from a dear friend. It is quick and easy to make, yet really yummy! It is also very versatile as it can be eaten cold or transformed into a soup. I hope you enjoy!

      Nice easy recipe! It has a gentle flavor. I served with rice and mango lassi, and we quite enjoyed the meal. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 50

      3 1/2 stars. This is bland without salt as stated by another reviewer. I added sea salt to taste but still felt a flavour was missing. I used butter, Garam Masala - Aromatic Kashmiri Spice Blend for Spicy Cooking! and ginger powder. I made ours into soup by adding some vegetable stock along with the water but I did taste it as dhal first so I am rating this based on both versions. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.

      Loula, I made this recipe as written and found it to be a little bland. The addition of a pinch of chilli flakes, the juice of half a lemon and a generous teaspoon of salt really lifted the flavours and I was very happy with the finished dish. I often see people complain that for all the spices a curry dish is bland and I think they forget to season it (curry spices cry out for salt in my opinion).
