Delightful Dhal

Let's get one thing straight. I love Indian food. Homemade, restaurants, the lot. When I go home, it has become a kind of unofficial tradition that we go to one of our local Indian restaurants for a meal. I do not object to this in the slightest. I made a dhal for tea tonight, which is a lightly spiced Indian lentil dish. It is often served on the side of larger dishes, but I made it the star of the show tonight and had it as a main meal! It is a one pot meal as well, so for those of you that don't like washing up, I highly recommend this... All the ingredients (well, all four of them if you include the water!) go into a saucepan, bring it to the boil and simmer for half an hour. I slightly underestimated the heat it would need (oh, to be cooking on my oven at home!), so mine was more of a lentil soup, but it was still a good meal! It was even a nice bright orange colour to go with the sun we've been having today.

Just after it had come to the boil... even the bubbles are pretty!

Simmer time now!
