  • Summary

    video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34FC_NRj41Y Can sub split red lentils (aka “masoor dal”) or red lentils. ** For a creamy and thick texture, I start with 2 cups (480 mL) water and gradually add more water throughout the cooking process--about 3/4 to 1 additional cup of water (180 to 240 mL).
