Red Lentils Hyderabadi
A while back, I made this recipe for red lentils from Madhur Jaffrey's book. I loved them, but what surprised me was that the kiddo loved them too! Basically, you saute mustard seeds and curry leaves in oil and put that on top of prepared red lentils. The recipe calls for hot peppers, but I leave those out.
I made the lentils again last night, but tried draining some liquid to see what I thought of them that way. Sadly, the first time I added cumin seeds as well as mustard seeds, and I forgot and didn't do that last night. They were still yummy, but not quite as amazing. Also, I think we liked it better runnier! Go figure.
