Bihari Daal

Chopstick Cinema

This Month's Film: A Passage to India
Cuisine: Indian (Bihar)

Daal is the term for any kind of Indian bean or lentil dish, and this daal has a little of everything: kidney beans, chickpeas, and lentils. It also includes onions, tomatoes, green chili peppers, garlic, and ginger. An amazingly simple yet satisfying dish.

The recipe will be posted at the end of the month, along with my 'Passage to India' film review.
