Ridge gourd lentil dal

Ridgegourd sambar2


This dish is warming, comforting, and nutritious, and I could probably eat it every day. This version is simple and easy (which is common in Indian cooking and adds a tremendous amount of flavor and depth to the dish) here I flavoured the dal just with garlic. Strangely enough, once you add the lentils to the pot, the key is not stirring them until the end; if you leave the lentils alone they’ll develop a wonderful creaminess as they becomes tender and begin to break down.
