What in the world are "nirmahl beads"?
I printed out the following recipe for Toor Dahl http://vegweb.com/index.php?topic=27769.0
and when reading it over I see it calls for "nirmahl beads." Has anyone heard of this?
I Googled and all I got were the recipe from VW and the same exact recipe, word-for-word, from another website. No idea which came first or if the OP (with only one post) just posted the same recipe on his blog or something.
So what's a nirmahl bead, anyone know?
coriander seed, maybe? Seems to be a big component of toor dal and it's missing from the ingredient list. Never heard of nirmahl beads, so I'm just taking a stab.
