Traditional Indian food served in households around the food.
If you talk to a kid raised under in an Indian family, dhal and rice is a familiar sound.
It’s the smell of geera cooking and the taste of comfort. It’s moms slipping vegetables into their kids meals without them knowing. It’s the taste of home.
Typically, my dhal and rice growing up was filled with ghee (processed butter) so I switched it out to a nice coconut oil as an easy vegan fix.
This meal is very low cost and is what I get down to making on that last night before I get paid or on those nights where I simply don’t feel like cooking.
Add in things such as whole coconut milk, different curry powders, tomatoes and veggies to really switch up the taste of you like!
Here is a base recipe to get you started!
