We used black urid beans in our dal which gave it a ridiculously rich texture - went perfect with our chole bhature, carrot salad and chana chaat (and homemade roti recipe!)

Wow, that's a great looking (and very healthy!?) meal there. Well done Amanda - you're right about that urid dal, they take a while to cook but are really rich and satisfying.
