Lentil Dal

Matthew:  In addition to making stews, I like to make lentil dishes in the winter.  One of my favorites is Lentil Dal, an Indian dish seasoned with cumin, chili powder, turmeric, and curry powder.  The spiciness of the lentils is nicely complemented with yogurt and cilantro.  I would recommend turning on your stove exhaust fan before you add the spices to the hot oil.  I waited until they had been in the oil for a bit and my apartment was engulfed in a haze of spice that stuck around for several days.  It was worth it for how good the lentils were.
