This is a delicious and hearty thick soup that is perfect for regular family lunches or as part of a more elaborate dinner. The five dals, or split beans, are easily available in any Indian grocery store. Although it takes quite a while to cook, the preparation is actually very simple, and the soup will keep in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for days. The final addition of a pan of seasonings and spices fried in oil makes for a quick burst of fantastic flavors that permeate the soup and will have your family or guests asking for seconds.
