Q. This is actually a very very nice dal. Simple, yet vibrant. I have just one qs. Just to be sure. How many stalks of green garlic have you used? 1/4 cup is negligible, and looking at your images, it does seem like more. I have cleaned and chopped 8 slender stalks and I have a little over 1/3 cup. In any case, if you added more green garlic, do you think that spoils the taste of the dal? I do so like this dal. It''s actually a very happy dal! I have made this dal 3 years ago but did not keep notes and likely used less green garlic. I searched a lot and found the recipe again. I am all set to make the dal today, everything is in place, just thought I will leave this note for you. (If you had provision for posting image, I would!) A. Hi, Ideally 1/4 cup is 3 1/2 tbsp and 1/3 cup is 5 tbsp. Adding more green garlic might make it more of garlicky flavour. It wont spoil the taste.
