  1. Never have I thought that I would be able to cook Indian food. Dal Is now of my most favourite Indian dishes and I always thought it is too complicated for me to cook. I still decided to try put your recipe and it turned out delicious. Very simple and clear, precise as well. Thank you a lot for sharing your knowledge!
