The sun may have been peaking through the clouds for a change, but it was so cold yesterday, I felt like I was living in an igloo. In an attempt to get warm, I cooked up a spicy Indian meal for dinner.
I used whole urad dal for this recipe, also known as black gram or black lentils. Commonly used in India, especially in the North, these little beans have creamy white interiors with black skins. As with the other ingredients in this recipe, whole urad beans can be easily obtained at any Indian grocery store, but feel free to use azuki beans or mung beans instead.
On the menu with methi (fenugreek leaf) rice.
