Comfort Food: Dal!

Week One: Treat Yourself (and others)!

I’m actually going to stick with the daily prompt today because it’s a good one: comfort food! But I have an ulterior motive. As I mentioned during one of last year’s Sunday prompts, I am not on board with busy, on-the-go Sundays. I’m in the “be lazy and get ready for another work week” camp, for sure.

So today, I’m relying on something I actually wrote about just a few months back: dal! Dal is a definite comfort food for me. Creamy, filling, and eminently nutritious: what’s not to love? Plus, it’s beautiful.

If this picture is familiar, you’re right — I used it in my review of a fabulous cookbook, Made in India: Recipes from an Indian Family Kitchen by Meera Sodha. This chana dal was simple to make, a joy to eat, and it reheated well for leftovers. Perfection.

One thought on “Comfort Food: Dal!

  1. I’ve had such a busy Sunday today, but generally I agree with you- it’s got to be lazy and uneventful! The dal looks delicious, and like it wouldn’t be too difficult to throw together on a relaxed Sunday.
