Hi again, still no entry. This has been a rough week, as I’ve been spending most of my time getting ready for the USC Puzzle Hunt, an annual event where teams work together to solve puzzles. It’s based off of the MIT Mystery Hunt, but on a much smaller scale.
I would like to report on this World Wednesday about yesterday’s question:
Learned League precedent (LL68, MD17) – In cuisines of South Asia, this word is used most commonly for a split, dried pulse (often lentils, sometimes peas, beans, etc.) or for a dish prepared using the ingredient. Varieties include channa, masoor, dhaba, urad, and rajma, among many others. What is this word?
If you are a loyal follower of FCT, then you should have recognized this question from our World Wednesday Indian edition.
5. What name is given to both legumes, especially lentils, used in Indian cooking, or the name of the thick stew that uses legumes?
Either way, the answer was dal/dhal, and I got it right! This blog is now directly paying off.
I *should* have some food trivia for you tomorrow, but just bear with me if I don’t.
