Dal is an Indian dish that is a staple food on the Asian subcontinent and it is easy to see why it is so popular. I love this dish because it is filling, healthy and adaptable. I wanted to share this recipe as I hope you, my wonderful readers will love it as much as I do!
The main ingredient for this dal recipe is the good old lentil. Lentils are a staple in our house as they are cheap, they go well with a wide variety of ingredients and their nutritious.
Lentils are a good source of protein and they are also rich in folate, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B, phosphorus and zinc.
This dish is easy to adapt and can be varied to suit your own tastes. For example if you aren't a fan of spinach try replacing it with mushrooms or asparagus. Non-vegans can add meat or fish and even the spices can be varied. The only key ingredient for this dish is the lentils.
This dal recipe doesn't keep well so I'd advise preparing then eating. You can refrigerate it but you'd need to add liquid to it to reheat it as otherwise it'll be very dry. Definitely, do not freeze it.
