Indian in less than an hour.


Check out this lovely plate of food. My co-worker Cynthia and I were talking indian food at work and we got so hungry and inspired that we decided to go to my house and make what you see here. I made the red lentil dal and mint chutney and Cynthia made the saag aloo (spinach and potatoes). It all turned out delicious and was so quick to make. It was really just throwing everything in a pot and letting it simmer. In case you're wondering, the mint chutney was made with Tofutti sour cream instead of yogurt.

That looks delicious, is there a particular recipe you follow for the dal?

I used a recipe in a book called Flavors of India. It's basically red lentils boiled in water then a bunch of spices are added: turmeric, cumin, coriander, salt. I also added garam masala because I like it so much. I also added some tomato which wasn't called for in the recipe.
