JFI: Toor Dal ~ The Roundup! Part 2: N ~ Z

Many many thanks for all of the lovely comments on The Roundup, Part 1!
I will get back and answer them individually now that Part 2 is done.
I am so happy that everyone is enjoying the fabulous Toor Dal Delights
created by so many talented cooks!

I thank you all for your patience and participation! I can’t remember when I had so much fun. Through this tiny legume I have met many new friends, and reconnected with some dear old friends as well.

It’s evident that toor dal is greatly loved! *Ninety-one* wonderful people contributed a total of *127* toor dal delights for JFI.

Each contributor and each dish is very special, and brings me much joy.
I wish I could sample every recipe; it is my honor to present them here.
Special thanks to Indira, creator of Jhiva, for the opportunity 🙂


As with Part 1, the links are set out by contributors’ first name. Photos aren’t clickable this time, but the name of each dish corresponds to the photo above it; clicking on the name will take you to the recipe on the corresponding blog.

At this time I am unable to script this to open links in a new window — so use the back button on your browser to return to this page.

If your first name (or the nickname you blog under) begins with N-Z and you don’t see your entry here, please send me a note at outofthegarden1911 at — as Revathi did, *sorry* Revathi!! You’re in there now! — so I can find it. \
Things got a wee bit busy there toward the deadline 🙂

Don’t forget to see the very special surprise guest contribution at the conclusion of this post — and now without further ado, feast your eyes on Part 2!

This is not the end of JFI: Toor Dal. A comprehensive reference page is in the works, and will be available after the New Year. I imagine I’ll have a few more words to say on the subject at that time (oh, I can hear the groans from here 😉 )

And now I pass the JFI Baton to lovely Deepz of Letz Cook, and for JFI January she is featuring Chocolate!! Look out, ’cause she has already made her first entry and it looks great!

Have lots of fun hosting, Deepz 🙂
