This dish uses two varieties of dal: moong (mung bean) and masoor (red lentils). The dals bring incredible texture and flavor, while the onions bring something slightly unique. “I’m putting them in because I like the taste of browned onions very much,” says Madhur Jaffrey. “The classic [tadka] would be just the asafetida and the cumin and the red chilies.”
