Green lentils

Green lentils b&w

 

Green lentils are wonderful in Punjabi green lentil dhal. That is one of my most popular recipe, and  I wrote here about starting to cook Indian food, learning from a friend and getting to know the spices. I thought it was about time to update it with some photos and make the dhal again. And yes, the dhal is still wonderful. So wonderful that I – erm… – ate the dhal before taking photos of the final dish…! I’m such a rubbish blogger. Will have to have another go soon at finishing updating that post. Smile
