With most of my Indian meals I like to serve a couple of legume or bean dishes. They’re hearty, healthy and tasty too. Given that a vast portion of the population in India are vegetarian or vegan, it means there is a cornucopia of amazing recipes to choose from. One such delight is this simple Shahi Daal.
The Punjab region in the North of India offers a decadent and creamy daal that I make a lot. It’s great on its own and I’ll often just have it over rice or roti breads, but more often as part of a larger feast. There’s nothing more I love than small portions of lots of curries, thali style. This shahi daal recipe is perfect for such an occasion as it’s pretty fail-safe, quick, and easy.
