Red lentil shortage?
Has anyone else had trouble finding red lentils in DC the past several weeks? The P St. Whole Foods, Adams Morgan Harris Teeter and Shaw Giant have all been out for at least a month (both the bulk bins and the 1 lb. bags). What gives?
If you've found them recently in Wards 1 or 2, please reply - I have a hankering for some dal!
I realize that this probably won't help you, but perhaps it will help others in the metro area. I recently bought them at The Lebanese Butcher in Falls Church.

I just bought 10 or 8 lb bag (yea, we eat a lot of lentils) for $14 at Lotte in Chantilly.
Seem to have a lot for really inexpensive price. BTW, my favorite indian grocery store is Lotte (I know it is a korean). Also have a good indian desert counter.
