bengali style fish with lentil and rice

my version -- yogurt and spice (cumin, turmeric, ginger, garlic, coriander, cayenne pepper, etc.) crusted baked tilapia with moog dal (yellow lentil), and white rice. inspired by typical bengali meals...

"Rice -dal and maach bhaja (fish fry) is the ultimate soul satisfying meal for us, the kind of comfort food that we grew upon at home. Fish is not just a culinary delicacy or pleasure for us, it is our very lifeline."-- Saffronstreak
tarka dal -- "a classic vegetarian recipe that is so easy to make. tarka simply refers to the few ingredients fried up and stirred in at the end; most Indian lentil dishes are made this way." -- Red
