The recipe they came up with is a mash-up of Indian- and Western-inspired recipes that is made from local ingredients.
The recipe was inspired by a dish that the family made at their home for dinner.
“We didn’t want to go out to restaurants and eat anything but food that was locally grown,” said Anand Surya, the family’s cook.
“Instead, we made our own dal using ingredients from local markets.”
The family made a dal from dried and boiled dal, dried turmeric powder, chana dal and dried onions.
The cooked dal is then fermented with spices and made into a creamy stew that is eaten with rice.
The dish is traditionally made with rice, potatoes, onions and peas.
The family was so pleased with the results, they decided to share it with the local media and social media.
“We wanted to give back to the community and help people know about the quality of dal,” said the family.
“In the future, we will be cooking more dal recipes for the people of Kalyan,” said Suryabh Bhanu, the cook.
The team hopes that the recipe can help educate people about dal’s health benefits and how to make a delicious version at home.
