Indian Lentil Dip- a Perfect Match for Rotilla!


For all technical purposes, Indian rotis or chapatis are the same home made Mexican wheat tortillas. Last night I needed to fix a quick dinner with some leftover cooked lentil ( toor dhal) and thought of making a dip of it for my home made tortillas- and when tortillas meet Indian dips they become Rotillas:). The lentil dip resembles what is commonly known as Dhal Fry,  a spiced fried lentil dish  with or without veggies in it! Fried a chopped onion and tomato, a sliced red and green chili, added the cooked lentils, spices and salt....and the dish was ready in minutes. As usual, I baked my tortillas for crispness. We really enjoyed  it and the request was to make more of it in the days to come!

Like the way you describe the humble dal as a dip for Rotilla. Nice creation and use of leftovers.
Best wishes, take care.

I do this all the time! Fusion Confusion. Though there are purist out there who appall fusion food, I'm one firm believer. Infact, what most of the world makes today is fusion food. With globalization now, and colonism before, people have been adapting cuisines according to culture and availability for forever.Once you know the logic of Balance of flavors in food you can play around as much as you want!

Incase you have slept by now reading...Thanks for posting :)
