  • About

Porridgelike and thick, this curry adroitly balances nutty and pungent flavors. Use more chiles (or fewer) to tilt the scale to suit your taste buds. For added richness, drizzle a tablespoon or more of ghee over the cooked dal. In addition to being downright tasty, the ghee will protect your tongue if you have added one too many red-hot chiles.
