According to the organizers:
Join us for A DHAL’s HOUSE, a five-course dinner highlighting the breadth and inclusion of the ingredient Dal, in collaboration with New Women New Yorkers, an organization dedicated to the empowerment of young immigrant women here in NYC.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to New Women New Yorkers. It is the first organization dedicated to empowering young immigrant women from all national origins in New York City. It offers them with a safe space, support network and the resources and opportunities to become role models and agents of change.
Dhal, while traditionally associated with South Asian cuisine, is actually, by definition, no more than a split pulse. Encompassing many dried peas and beans, with greater than 60 types available, it can be grown anywhere in the world.
Most importantly, it is a foundation food, the core of dishes that can comfort and heal all year round, transcend culture, and be eaten “with equal relish by toothless toddlers, husky farmers and effete urban snobs.” -Madhur Jaffrey
