Dal is an Indian main course dish prepared using various Legumes or Pulses. This protein rich gravy can be served with any type of Flat Breads and Rice. I have used Brown Lentils (whole masoor dal). However you could substitute it with canned Chick Peas, Kidney Beans or any other legumes. While serving the dal, you could also add a tbsp. of butter to enhance the flavor. If you would like a more soupy consistency then add extra water accordingly. Since I was serving it with Rice I added less water to get creamy consistency.
