Carla's Everyday Indian Menu (3 lessons, $4.95)

The Everyday Indian Menu is a series of lessons that Carla has created displaying standard (yet mouthwatering) dishes eaten throughout modern India, well, everyday.

This particular instructional focuses on a mainstay of Indian and Pakistani cuisine, dal. For many vegetarians in the southern regions of Asia, this is a daily source of protein and an essential element to a healthy and balanced diet. While there are many types of dal, this lesson focuses how to make a delicious dish with the red lentil dal variety, or Masoor Dal. Carla will take you through the steps to transform the tasteless red lentil dal into a mouthwatering dish packed with flavor!

Carla began cooking Indian food at the age of 15 and went on to hone her skills at the best Indian cooking school ever - her mother’s kitchen! She has adapted these recipes to life in America, developing homemade curry pastes, spice mixtures and cooking sauces that make Indian cooking fun, fast and convenient. The Spice Route Homemade Indian Cooking classes aim to demystify Indian cooking, and prove that Indian cuisine is about SO much more than curry powder!

A useful and clear recipe. A particular bonus is the run through of all of the various types of lentils you can buy - it helps to see them as they sometimes have different names in different stores and countries.
