What does “Dahal” means, and where does it from? Dahal Aubergine Spinach Lentil

Originally from East India, Dahal is one of the most beautiful and representative Indian dishes. The word “Dahal” means “split”. This dish, therefore, is made with red split lentils and rice. Like any recipe, Dahal has many versions from different towns, and the newest recipes come with meat. I would not mind adding some Lamb. However, the original recipe is vegan, and it was used as a main course for Hinduism weddings. Dahal Aubergine Spinach Lentil

Trying to focus on the solution rather than the causes. That will lead you to a different level of thinking, reduce your stress, and make you feel better.
