Dal of the Day (Chef's Special)

Each state in India has its favourite selection of dal, even though most common ones (like masoor, tur, urad, moong and chana dal) are used pretty much everywhere. Each of these dals are also prepared in different ways in different regions – while they all have an earthy creaminess in common, the fragrant tempering of spices used in each gives them distinctly unique flavours that simply cannot be compared.

History yields some very interesting facts about dal. Lentil dishes have been known to Indians since very early times. Archaeological evidence indicates that the Indian dal made its first appearance in the Indus Valley Civilization, where lentils – of all kinds – were a staple food.

The cuisine of Bengal consists of dishes from both East and West Bengal i.e. undivided Bengal era as well as the dishes which originated in the city of Kolkata during the British rule. There is an emphasis on vegetarian cuisine, specially during festivals and is most commonly prepared without onion and garlic. A Mughlai influence on the cuisine is due to the their rule over certain parts of Bengal and the last Mughal emperor Wajid Ali Shah has said to have contributed a lot to the Bengali cuisine.

There is a bit of history involved with the origin of this unique blend of cuisines; The Indian form of “Hakka Cuisine” originates from the fact that the a lot of Chinese restaurants in India are owned by the people of the Hakka origin. Both the Indian and the Chinese cultures combined, accepted and fused happily in terms of food giving birth to an entirely new kind called the Indo-Chinese or the Indian Chinese; with the taste and flavors very different from both Indian and Chinese cuisine, it is a genre by itself. It is bold, varied, spicy – overall an experience by itself. The Indian Chinese flavors are also enjoyed by Indian and Chinese communities in Malaysia, and Singapore.
