Color of the setting sun, this orange-yellow curry is smooth, creamy, and stick-to-your-ribs tasty. I like to eat curries like this with thin flatbreads like rotis or with warmed store-bought whole-wheat tortillas. For an unusual first course, serve a bowlful of this dal surrounded by slices of toasted French bread, commonly referred to as crostini. Instruct your guests to dunk the toasts in the dal and savor every crunchy, creamy bite.
