The owner of a local Indian restaurant taught me how to grind tomato, ginger and onion together and saute them with curry spices to make an authentic saucy dal. To simplify this recipe, use ready-made curry powder instead of the various spices. For the best results, make sure the curry powder is fresh. Serve over brown basmati rice, and garnish with cilantro and silvers of ginger.
