Bengal Tiger Lentil Curry

{ A CLASSIC NORTH INDIAN LENTIL DISH, THIS CAN BE DRAMATIC LOOKING, AS THE YELLOW LENTILS STAND OUT FROM THE SMALLER BLACK PULSES. MOST IMPORTANTLY, IT IS LUSCIOUS AND DELICIOUS. ONCE THE LENTILS SOFTEN, THE MORE YOU STIR THEM THE CREAMIER THEY BECOME. LENTILS AND BUTTER GO REALLY WELL TOGETHER, SO I DO RECOMMEND YOU ADD A LITTLE BUTTER AT THE END BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS GREAT WITH RICE OR INDIAN BREADS. }
