Daal is like my “chicken noodle soup”. It is my go to comfort food for when I need some TLC 🙂 I have it when I’m sick, when I’m sad or just pissed off at the world … hehe. Daal is a must have on any Bengali dinner table, so it’s also got a nostalgic affect on me.
Daal means lentil and there are many different types of daal, but red lentil is the most popular and easiest to make. Part of the legume family, lentil is quite healthy as well. It helps lower cholesterol, good for the heart and does wonders for your digestive system.
