I hate gratuitous insults, but ... roy dahl is a prat.
A typical meal consists of rice actually, I dont think Ive had a lunch or dinner without rice, some vegetables, a meat/fish/egg, and dahl, which is like a lentil soup, except very thin.
We can't wait to sink our teeth into another conch roti at Ali's Roti Shop, where the pink-shelled sea creature comes wrapped with potatoes and chickpeas in the Bengali flatbread called dahl poori-with extra hot sauce, of course.
Asked for a chick pea curry, but somehow ended up with a dahl, which is okay as i was torn between them, but not sure how.
Entrées include the tandoori-roasted meats, curries, and sides such as dahl (stewed lentils), curried crushed potatoes, stir-fried green beans and slow-cooked spinach and paneer (a mild South Asian cheese).
Often spelt 'dahl' but I'm going with the 'h' before the 'a' because 'dahl' looks like a pet name for a close friend.
Elsewhere on the menu, regulars rave over the karahi fish and the deigi dahl gosht, a marrow-infused dish of lentils and lamb cooked on the bone.
Made from a finely-ground rice and lentil batter mix fried on a flat griddle like a crepe, the eponymous dosas are staggeringly good, as are the accompaniments: a liquidised, frothy and refreshing green coconut "chutney", and a sambar best described as a tamarind, tomato and lentil dahl cooked down into a thick, fragrant gravy.

They lived mostly on basic lentil dahl and chapattis they made themselves.
