Maa di dal (Black lentils)

Submitted by: ARDUINNA

Introduction

This is adapted from the cookbook, The Indian Slow Cooker.I had to adapt it to fit what spices I had on hand. I'm not sure what lentils I actually used...the bag just said lentils. I hope the nutrition facts are correct, there is no entry for dried lentils, cooked. I estimated 1/2c dry lentils=1c cooked.
