This much-loved Sri Lankan dal is so delicious and simple; it literally takes care of itself once you have put all the ingredients in the pan. The only ingredient that may be tricky to source is the pandan leaves, but any Asian grocer will have them, or you can order them online. I buy a few, freeze them and cook with them from frozen. They bring a wonderfully distinct flavour to the dal, but don’t worry if you can’t find them as it will still taste great.
