We use the Indian Market near my husband's workplace for all of our lentils and nuts. They are far cheaper than the supermarket and because you buy large bags, they last quite some time. I have a pretty good amount of yellow dals and the other day I was debating on how to use them. I found a simple recipe that can have things added to it veggie or fish and meat wise. I also used ghee instead of margarine or butter. As for what to serve it with, I chose to make garlic flavored rice and peas in our rice cooker. A hearty meal with a fair amount of leftovers.
