I love Indian food, over the years I’ve created numerous vegan and non-vegan dishes. When prepared for others, I don’t have any complaints. Earlier today I prepared this wonderful dhal. The brown rice and the honey garlic and ginger sauce that was made yesterday, was added to the dish. It was simple, delicious, and nutritious.
Dhal is a thick soup usually prepared from lentils. However, I’ve also seen it made from peas or other dried beans. I make mine with lentils. Dhal makes a delicious base for the numerous types of dhal that I prepare. Dhal is commonly served with flatbread and over rice.
Today, I didn’t make any chapati (Indian flat bread which is quite simple to make) but I did add a twist (to the way I normally prepare this dish) I added a sauce. I have leftover dhal and rice, so perhaps I’ll make some chapati tomorrow?
With my old site, VeganMomma, dhal was one of the most popular dishes I’d make. Those posts received a lot of hits! It also brought about some interesting discussions from the various food bloggers that would stop by and comment about the types of dhal they prepared ( a few were from India) or eaten at restaurants. On that site, when it came to food I only wrote about vegan food. However the majority of my commentators were non-vegan.
I place Dhal in the ‘comfort food‘ category, simple, flavorful, and oh so satisfying.
