This is the best tasting dal that I have ever had! Unfortunately, I have no source for yellow lentils so I use regular lentils.
1 cup lentils
cover the lentils with water and boil until soft
1 medium onion chopped
1 heaping teaspoon ginger paste
1 heaping garlic paste
fry until brown. Add
3 roma tomatoes chopped
blend the mixture and add to the lentils plus
2 tablespoons yogurt
one small dried red chile
teaspoon mustard seed
teaspoon cumin seed
Heat the ghee or oil until hot, brown the remaining ingredients and garnish the dal.
