mara235 I'd like to know too, because i've always had a hard time differentiating (esp from a distance) between various varieties of yellow pulses - such as pigeon peas, channa dal, hulled mung dal (green with hull, yellow without hull), yellow gram, etc.
As for this dish, it's hard to tell but i'd wager $0.02 on channa dal, and my second guess pigeon peas.
Yes, I'd love to see some village style versions of those ... dosa/dhokla, papad, rasam, and local snacks/refreshers. I recently taught myself the first three of those, and it'd be great to see them done in different settings with different tools and techniques.
Roqsar Banu Ah, I'd apparantly missed that the first time i'd watched, so it looks like youre correct.
BTW, when I use ingredient ramekins in my mis en place, i measure exactly when filling and use the entire contents of each ramekin ... that habit may have biased my interpretation as well.
Roving Punster If u see the vedio at 4.38 she s tryin to put some chilli powder without a spoon and it falls fully from the container. the ratio which she uses the turmeric powder s vry less than the chilli. especially for daal curry it is not advisable to use huge chilli as tat curry s ment to be mild n creamy tats wat I was tryin to say
Roqsar Banu Some people, myself included, like a lot of chili, which is common in this regional style. Also, color is not necessarily a good indicator of heat when it comes to chili powder, so its hard to tell from a vid how hot it actually is. Last, cauliflour, like potato, absorb spices, and so you have to season & salt more aggressively to compensate for their absorption/muting effect.
In other words, not really a mistake.
Manju Bhatti Cauliflour, like chicken or eggplant, is a blank canvas for a cook to express their personal or regional style with ... its all in how you season or sauce it. The version in this vid is very southern (indian) in style.
