I saw this Subzi Dal featured in some magazine quite a while back. I have an idea I must have come across it while waiting to see the doctor or dentist or some such place because I never did write it down. All I remember is the name and that it was made with cooked lentils and some vegetables, and it seemed to me a perfect idea to combine both in one dish instead of cooking the two separately.
So using the idea, I have come up with my own recipe for this using ingredients and quantities to suit our tastes. While I have used yellow lentils (tuvar dal) here this can also be made with split moong lentils (moong dal) or split puy lentils (masoor dal).
So whenever I need cook up something wholesome but quickly for dinner, to serve along with chappathis, this tends to be one of my choices. I usually cook dal in a slightly larger quantity than required, and then freeze the rest in 3 or 4 single use portions. This way I usually always have dal to use.
