Do any restaurants around here make dishes with chana dal? (Look like yellow split peas, made by removing the husk from kala chana, the smaller, black variety of chickpeas.)
It's easy to find in Indian stores but I haven't been very happy with my attempts at cooking it, so I'd like to try some made by someone who knows what they're doing. Invariably when I see the word on restaurant menus it turns out they're actually using chickpeas.
I had a kala chana side dish at Ajanta the other day that was really good.
