Anyways, daal baati is a real comfort food, and it was perfect to eat in the comfort of my parents' home. It was also really wonderful to spend time cooking with Mom and learning from her in person. As we get older, we realize how those opportunities come less and less. I encourage everyone to spend at least a little time learning how to cook one recipe from your own mom next time you go home!
Note: the first ingredients photo is for the daal. The second is for the baati.
