Compared to the kinds of daal available here in Singapore, which appear like yellow-coloured water to me, this is the kind of daal we Pakistanis make. And these are two different daals - the yellow one is daal channa - chickpeas split in half, and the black one we call masar - but I think people from different parts of Pakistan and India have different names for it - like daal masoor or something. Both these take four hours to prepare, though no real effort is required.
So what I'm trying to share here is that I spent four precious hours cooking during exam time when I could've studied. What a cool I am! What a cool.
Exam time is like that for me - even the most boring and mundane activities seem to be so refreshing, and studying is the last thing that could interest me. The irony! Oh well, maybe I should begin studying for the two major exams I have tomorrow! Hah! [The keyword here is 'maybe'.]
