Chana Dal – spicy fried

Chana Dal (half saucepan)
2 bay leaves – optional, gives a meatier taste

6 tsp oil
1 large onion finely chopped (or as you prefer)
1 tsp asafoetida powder
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp arada berberé (take less if you don’t want that spicy)
salt to taste

When the dal is soft enough, drain the dal and remove the bay leaves.
Let the dal dry and (preferably) cool.

Fry the onion in the olive oil until golden brown.
Add all spices (except the salt) sizzle a couple of seconds.
