Aug 20 - Langarwali Dal with roasted poblano peppers
Glutinous textures are not my favorite (if this wasn't obvious - when have you seen a SINGLE dish involving Okra that I've posted?) , but Langarwali dal is an exception. This is a classic dal served at Gurudwaras (Sikh houses of worship) as part of a tradition of their communal kitchen where everyone who visits is fed a hearty meal of roti and dal.
This dal uses Urad & chana dal to get the inimitable flavor with minimal assistance from heavy spices. During the summer chili pepper season, I like adding fire roasted mashed poblano peppers to the mix for the 'heat'.
