Earlier this week we touched on all of the health benefits that come with turmeric. Here’s great way to incorporate turmeric in your daily life. There is a fine line between a delicious, creamy golden milk and a golden milk that tastes like dirt . As beneficial as turmeric is, a little goes a long way. There is no need to serve a heaping spoon of turmeric in your golden milk. In fact, I’ve had golden milk lattes at a few coffee shops and that’s exactly what it tasted like (too much turmeric).
When I was younger, dhal was a weekly staple in our home. I remember my mom feeding me at a young age. She would mix rice, butter and dhal with her hands and form a little fistful of dhal bhat. (bhat = rice). To this day, this is a flavor that I will never forget. It’s a meal I will never forget. It’s a memory that I will always have of my mom. Eating from her hands.
As an adult, I’ve realized how versatile dhal can be. It’s been a great way to introduce spices to my babies. It’s been a great side dish to any fry meats or vegetables but also a main dish for my vegetarian daughter. Making this recipe in an instant pot makes life so much easier, especially because I always forget to soak my lentils overnight.
