Red Lentils Dal Curry
Was very amazed to see an indian recipe in a German website.
The method was totally different from how i used to do, especially ginger and coconut raspel added late, so do the lately added turmeric.
Have made a couple of times now with Jeera basmati rice or chappathi. Children loves it hence the recipe is a keeper and thus its in my site.
