Sweet Potato Dahl
A friend recently connected me with a new spice company. Located in North Carolina, Mamma T’s Southern Indian Spices, is a fairly new company but their flavors are phenomenal! They sent me two of their spices to try out. I had plans to make this Sweet Potato Dahl for the blog and I swapped out the seasoning I usually use with the Original. Wow! It was better than my original recipe! I highly recommend checking out Mamma T’s and making this dahl as soon as possible. Stay tuned for another recipe in collaboration with Mamma T’s!
