“Ma ke hath ka dal chawal (mother’s dal-rice), is what most Indians love when it comes to their all-time favourite food. The further Indians travel from home, the more they relish the ubiquitious dal preparartions. No Indian meal is complete without dal – whether it be the wonderful Dal Takda of the north or the fiery Sambhar of the south. Dal can be served as a main course, side dish, soup, salad or even a sweet. At break¬fast, lunch, tea or dinner, dal in some form is omnipresent. Simple to follow and with precise measures, this is the ultimate dal cookbook. It contains dal recipes of every kind – from everyday preparations which accompany the usual rice or roti diet; to unusual one-dish meals made with an amazing mix of lentils and vegetables; to rich meat-and-lentil combinations for the non-vegetarian table. Also included are delicious snacks and sweets made from different varieties of dal – to round off a meal or just to add zest to a picnic or lunch box. DAL ~ Foods of India, is a timeless book that can be passed down the generations. ”

About the Author

“Mona Verma (nee Pahlajani) was born in 1940, in Sukker, Pakistan, before the fateful events of Partition. Following an Intermediate in Arts from Bhopal University, her interest in cookery took wing after marriage. She learnt the art of cookery by attending classes and experimenting on her own with ingredients and flavours. In 1968, she started her own cookery classes in Calcutta, which became extremely popular, and she was soon appointed cookery teacher for graduate students at St. Loretto’s Convent. In 1971, she moved to Mumbai and so did her cookery classes. The fact that, at one time,13 of her students were running their own cookery classes is a tribute to her skill both as a cook as well as a teacher. For many years she also conducted Finishing Courses for final year students at Vivekanand Education Trust’s High School & College. Mona has varied social interests. She has been actively involved with the Lion’s Movement; served on the board of Seva Samiti, a charitable trust working for needy women; and is an active member of the National Council of Women in India (Nagpur Chapter). She is also a poet and student of Indian classical music. Writing is one of her many passions and her articles have appeared in many newspapers and magazines. She continues to write a Sunday cookery column for The Hitavada. Her book, Fasting Foods Of India has been published by Leadstart Publishing as part of the Foods Of India series. Mona lives in Nagpur with her husband Asoka, a Management Consultant. Mona can be reached at: [email protected]
