"Seriously - this dish was amazing. Using the lemons - genius! Actually - my sucky grocery store didn't have Fennel so I went with Turnips instead...it took a little longer to cook - but was worth the wait! Everyone loved this - my husband said it was the best turnips & carrots he'd ever eaten. Perfect on a winter's night! Thanks Aarti!!!

"After 13 years of marriage - this was the first time I was motivated to get my vegetarian husband into the kitchen to cook WITH me. He is pretty bad and usually doesn't make anything I would ever eat. Seeing Aarti's show - I was so inspired to go for it - and get him involved! The dish was great and I only yelled at him once (as he was adding the yogurt...I'm yelling "STIR AS YOU GO!!!"). It was a blast and the end result was something that looked like it was straight out of an Indian restraunt! I'm not new to Indian Cooking - I've been working my way through a very authentic cookbook for Indian home cooking called "From Mom with Love." But this recipe challenged my favorite recipe from that book (a mean Ghobi Alu).
Aarti rocks! I love her laugh, too!!!
"I wanted to love this! Aarti described it beautifully. But the flavor was just soooooo sweet from the squash & honey. If I made it again - I'd definately taste the broth before adding the honey to get an idea of how sweet I needed to go. I was glad to have a recipe for Toor Dal which I bought at an Indian Grocery Store a while ago. I will say - I love that technique of heating the oil, adding spices and then adding that mix to the pot. It is quite dramatic & fun!
I need to find a source for brown mustard seeds, too. My local grocery store only has the regular ones. So that may have played a part in the flavor of my outcome - but I know it didn't have anything to do with the sweetness.
