We ate a lot of dhal during our journey through the subcontinent in 1969. Dhal is comfort food, and variations of it abound. When I first encountered this dish, the first thing that struck me was the use of dried split mung beans, instead of orange or yellow lentils. Every household in this region has a slightly different version, so feel free to tailor the taste to suit your own family.
