Earlier this summer I asked friends on facebook what their favorite weeknight recipe is considering these criteria:
- max 45 min from start until food is on the table
- with ingredients you usually have at home
- with non expensive ingredients
- that does not result in a ton of dishes
- that preferably is vegetarian
One dish has already been published here: Palak paneer with halloumi, another one was this recipe for Dal (Indian lentil stew). Well, “dal” is actually a Hindi word for all dried pulses (lentils, beans, peas). And even if “dal” is the spelling wikipedia and other sources tend to use most, there are plenty of variations like; daal, dahl and dhal.
Anyway, this dish is so easy, quick and delicious it certainly earned a place here on the blog where my best recipes end up. Other recipes, that are not exceptional but still very good, are uploaded to the IngredientMatcher app (along with all recipes here on the blog). The app is working as it should now but is only available by invitation at this point, a Beta version.
