Karl’s Goan Urad Dal

I am making a Goan Dinner this Sunday. For those of my diners that are avoiding simple carbs, like rice, I wanted to provide a more complex carbohydrate option.  I looked at several recipes, but many of them seemed more generally Indian, rather than Goan. I freely adapted from one of the Goan recipes to create my own.

Karl’s Moong Dal Tadka with Chingri (Shrimp)

I have recently discovered dals. Not that I did not know that they existed, but that they were easy to make and not just restaurant fare. Many of the recipes I have found call for cooking the legumes in a pressure cooker—which I do not own—or alternatively cooking them for hours. I have found that neither of these is required to produce a decent dal.

Karl’s Carrot and Red Lentil Dhal

Just Miriam is joining us for dinner this Sunday, Chris is off to New York for the week. She is on the Atkins diet, so I still have to adapt my cooking to her desires. She is entering Phase two, so I thought I would make a dhal to go with my chicken curry and palak paneer.

Karl’s Curried Leek and Lentil Soup with Karl’s Chicken Tandoori Meatballs

This morning Jan asked for my potato and leek soup with chicken. I have done that and this blog always pushes me to try something new. What could I do that both answered Jan’s desire, but also be completely new and different?
