I have a slow cooker. I don’t use it. But I have it. In case I finally live up to my ideal of cooking up meals for the week ahead.
This week I’m considering making a dal. So easy, so freezable, so yummy.
But I’m not a cook. And my entire yummy dal experience is from a local Indian Restaurant that does something magical to beans that makes me like them.
So I googled, as one does. And it turns out… Dal is not just one thing. Or it sort of is – it’s legumes. But sometimes they are whole, hulled or split. Depends.
India is GINORMOUS, for those of you who flunked geography. And different areas do different versions of dals. Different spices, or beans or what not.
Very few recipes are already for a slow cooker and I’m not an expert so…
I have no idea what kind of dal my favorite is. It’s just the magical stuff you put over the rice and then it’s contentment in my mouth.
I was overwhelmed by the possibilities I see. And I’m fairly sure I’m not going to be making dal tomorrow.
I might buy some on the way home though. 😍
