Yellow Dal

BY : PUBLISHED : June 15th, 2015 UPDATED: February 4th, 2022

I love making food in bulk and this is a great example of a bulk food that tastes even better the second day. Indian food is so flavorful and so easy to make. Make sure to toast your spices first and you can't go wrong with this yellow dal. Make some rice and you're good to go for the week.
