Check out this recipe!



I love Indian food, each dish is always bursting with flavor. So, when Chef Adam Sobel of Cinnamon Snail sent out some Indian recipes to test I was VERY excited. I've been experimenting with various Indian recipes before and found some I liked, but nothing tasted anything close to what I get at my favorite Indian restaurant a few towns over, until now.


Another thing I really love about Chef Adam's recipes is the detail he includes. You get a story about the food and the instructions are detailed so you can go into each recipe confident you'll nail it.


Here are some photos from the North Indian Arhar Dal Tadka (Toor Dal) You might notice that I used Masoor Dal (red split lentils) not Toor Dal but that's what I had on hand and it still came out beautifully. (I also couldn't decide which water muring photo I like best, so you got two!)




The recipe for the rice in the 5th picture can be found in Chef Adam's Vegan Biryani recipe, which is also incredible. A picture of the biryani (still in the pot) is below. I am just as surprised as you are that I didn't take more photos! Don't worry though, Chef Adam has plenty of clear and beautiful photos on the recipe page!




I didn't try Indian food until I was in my late 20's! I spent so many years missing out on so many amazing dishes.

Your dal and biryani both look perfect!! A fan of Indian food (biased for I am from India) here. I grew up watching my mom cooking delicious food but started cooking myself only when I moved to the US after I got married.. and Indian food sure has so much to offer - vidya

Your pictures looks so vibrant and appetizing! Good thing I just had lunch. I made green lentil Dal the other day. It was my very first time to cook with lentils at all. I may give it another try soon.

Ooo, I've never made green lentil dal! I love cooking with lentils, they're so flavorful and versatile. I've used the brown lentils in everything from shepherd's pie to sloppy joes. The small French lentils are lovely too. Keep me posted on what you make next!

I read your post, got to the bottom, and thought... wait! Where is the recipe?!?!?! But I get that it is probably copyright issues. I will have to head over to my local Barnes & Noble (do they still exist?) and pick up a copy of the cook book.


I will have to try it out as I am a big fan of Indian food - my generic, unknowing aptitude of regions of that fine country! The spices are amazing! Thanks for making me hungry at 10:35 pm!


Oh 0 and I am looking forward to hearing the podcast interview! Very cool!!!

I just wanted to take a moment to compliment your blog post about Chef Adam Sobel's Indian recipes. I'm a big fan of Indian food, and I always appreciate it when I find a new recipe that's both delicious and easy to make. Your post was very informative, and I especially liked the photos of the finished dishes. They looked absolutely delicious!

I've never tried Chef Adam's recipes before, but I'm definitely going to give them a try now. I'm especially interested in the North Indian Arhar Dal Tadka (Toor Dal) and the Vegan Biryani. Thanks for sharing your find!

I also wanted to add that I really appreciate the way you write about food. You have a way of…
