The Dal Cookbook

...that Tahir said looked interesting -

This looks intersting


Is.
Arrived today and turns out it's a v nice little hardback book. Spit into regions of India. Well worth the 4.99.
Inside cover says 16.99, so even better! Smile

Will do.

I'm doing something with Puy lentils tonight but it's from the other book I indulged in to get free postage - Yotam Ottolenghi's 'Plenty'.

2 recipes tried so far, both good.

This is exactly why I ended up not buying the dhal book, just couldn't stop adding other stuff to my basket Embarassed

The name appeals to me. Nick

Jerusalem is better. It's the same, but adds meat. Shan

I have 'Plenty' but I tend to use his 'Jerusalem' more.

It's quite refreshing (as an ex-veggie but I still often chose to cook without meat) to use a recipe book which doesn't make a hoo-ha about being vegetarian. To be honest, I hadn't really noticed.

I think, on balance, that veg is more interchangeable than meat in a recipe.

I think it should be much more "normal" to have meat free meals, we probably cook vegetarian 90% of the time. People eat far too much meat, as I've said before most of my favourite food is peasant food and that tends to be very low on meat Shan

Ironically, it's the vege dishes I tend to cook out of Jerusalem. Laughing
