Today I learned how to cook the Indian dish, red dal. This is the YouTube site I used to guide me through the process. I went to MANY sites, but chose this one because I could understand the instructor. She also has a website with the printable version of the recipe, which also helped.
Because I'm a newbie at this stuff, my first attempt ended up in a cloud of stinky smoke. I took a swig of wine and got back in the game and tried it again. Here is a website on how to get rid of the odors if you also find you have to learn the hard the way, like me.
