ramaanam is an Indian dish, which is basically a curry made of a blend of red lentils, peas, onions, and spices. It’s a comfort food that is loved for its unique, flavorful broth. This recipe uses red lentils.
You can also use a lot of onions and spices for the curry.
It tastes a bit like a cross between a black eyed peas curry and a chutney. I prefer the curry with the peas and the curry with the onions, but there is a lot of good reason to use both.
