Dhansak is a hugely popular dish that originates from the Parsi community in Mumbai, who originally fled Persia over 1000 years ago. This dish uses lentils to create a thick, dhal-like sauce, and it has a sweet, sour and spicy flavour - very typical of Parsi cooking and demonstrative of both Persian and Indian influences.
