SIMPLE MASUR DAL (Split Lentils Soup)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Dal is a traditional legume based soup-like preparation in India. The main ingredient is usually a legume (split beans or lentils) or mixed legumes with or without skin that is cooked with spices and/or vegetables, that vary from region to region. Thus, every version of the dal gets a new name that highlights the special ingredient or style of preparation. Most meals are incomplete with a serving of dal along with rice in southern India or paratha in northern India. However, most of them involve a light to strong tempering of different spices in ghee or butter. This masur dal is a delicious and nutritious preparation that can be cooked in no time.
