Dal - consistency question

Coyote | Mar 2, 2005 01:16 PM

I just made the Nigella Lawson red lentil and sweet potato dal recipe from today's NYT. Very happy with the flavor, but it is REALLY soupy. She says to cook a little longer if necessary but I am not quite sure what level of soupy versus stewy I am aiming for. I'd need to serve it in a bowl at this point, I'd hate to cook out all the texture of the vegetables, but am wondering if dal isn't more typically served on a plate.
