GINA CUCINA MOROCCAN RED LENTIL STEW AS DAL
Each state in India has its own version of dal. Ancient texts date it as far back as 303 BC. Dal is as common in India as mashed potatoes are in Idaho, my home state, here mashed potatoes are at nearly every meal and just as hearty.
They start with an 8000-year-old legume that gets spruced up with smoky flavors like paprika, turmeric, cardamom, and even cayenne. Add in some ghee (clarified butter), and this dish is indulgently delicious. Our Moroccan Red Lentil Stew is an excellent base to make your very own dal, without having to rush out and fill your cupboards with rarely used spices. Let Gina Cucina help you out!
Here is a simple and fulfilling meal for those cold winter days, and it only takes 30 minutes to prepare.
