I tried Indian Food today for the first time tonight. I made Yellow Daal over rice and some Naan (Indian flatbread) to go with it. Yellow daal (also spelled dhal) is a thick lentil stew made with yellow split peas. It was hard to find a recipe with ingredients that I'd heard of, but this one was simple and familiar. I also steamed some veggies just because I knew someone would refuse to eat it and I wanted to have something on the table that everyone would eat.
Naan recipe online, but it was cooked on a grill. I didn't want to fire up the grill in the backyard, so I went with the griddle. They look like pancakes in this picture, but they were actually super good. Everyone liked the bread. I really liked the daal and so did my husband and 3 of the kids. The 2 others we had to promise that if they took one bite, they'd never have to taste Yellow Daal again. One ended up liking it, the other is too stubborn to admit it even if he did.
