Red Lentil Dhal

This dhal has a very simple texture and yet is intricately and authentically flavored with Indian spices. If you have never tried dhal before, this recipe will make it a memorable experience. Take the opportunity to experiment with the amount of chili flakes you add according to how spicy you like your food. With or without the extra spice, it is a delightful companion to basmati rice.
