- Wash the dhal thoroughly (even scrubbing quickly with your hands).
- Stir the dhal and water together in a pot and bring to a boil. (ratio 1 to 6, a little less water if you like it thicker).
- Lower the heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes. Scoop the foam off the top with a spoon as it rises (or whenever you like). Stir, occasionally.
- Put the heat on very low, and leave it there for as long as you like, making sure there is enough water so it won’t dry out. (Makes 1 serving. This recipe can be easily multiplied to feed the whole family.)

Salt to Taste
