General Directions

  1. If time permits, soak the dal in warm water for 6 to 24 hours prior to cooking.  If time does not permit rinse the beans well before cooking.
  2. Boil three cups of water for every one cup of dal.  Once boiling, add in the dal and cook, mostly covered, over medium heat for 25 to 30 minutes.  Stir well every 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. The dal is done when the beans are very soft and have lost their form.
  4. For better flavor and health benefits add in spices, ghee, oil, vegetables, basmati rice, quinoa, or grains as desired.
