12 Hour Dal - 5 Star Diner

Krusty Kreme | Jan 14, 2002 04:41 PM

There has been lot of talk about the Punjabi 5 Star Diner (21st street in LIC) on this board -- and I am a big fan as well. I almost always order the infamous "butter chicken" -- but I expanded my horizons and ordered a Dal dish yesterday.

The menu boasted "Lentils cooked for 12 hours"

At first I mocked the idea but all I can say is -- 12 hours must be the magic hour for lentils. It was great. Hearty, rich and flavorful as all hell.

What a treat for $4.99. I love that lil ol Dive.
