shezq23 2y agoDon't forget to garnish with cilantro! Might have to adjust the quantity of the green chilies, two may be too much.
grrlpretty 8y agoI love the recipe, but the dhal came out mushy. I would love some tips on how to make dhal that keeps the correct texture. If you don't like your food too spicy, seed the green chilies first. In India they don't seed chilies, which we are used to here in the US. I served this with Basmati rice and Onion Roti. Will definetly make this again. Thank you so much for the recipe!
