  1. I love dill and for some reason it screams Spring to me.

  2. This is one of those recipe I'm excited to try! I love the addition of the dill!

  3. Dill is my favourite. I usually make it with moong dal and use a much larger amount of dill to the dal. Would love to try it out with chana dal.

  4. I'm always looking for great lentil recipes! This sounds delicious.

  5. Potatoes and chickpeas make the best comfort dish but I would never have thought to add dill. I'll bet it adds a fresh bright flavor!

  6. This sounds such a healthy and easy side for rice and roti, I am making this right away for dinner.
