Help. So many ingredients I don’t know anything about for this cuisine and I’m not exactly a newbie to the food scene. Just not this food. Two are: asafoetida and tood dal. I live where there is multicultural shopping available so maybe – what kind of shop would look for.
Hey – thanks foe expanding my taste horizons.
You can find asafoetida and toor dal in Indian grocery stores.
I’ve always been intimidated to make Indian food, but this looks like something I could handle. It looks so delicious!
