What is the traditional dish of your country and how is it made?

Uruguay and Argentina share their love for "asado" (barbecue), but I would say that the typical dish of my country is "milanesas con papas fritas" (breaded steak with fries). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milanesa
I make them differently. First I cover the slices with bread crumbs, patting them on both sides, then I dip them into the beaten eggs. Finally, before frying them, I perform the first step again.
If you have a fatty liver or your cholesterol level is high, you can bake them.
Have never tasted one? Dare, you won´t regret.

    Jul 31 2011: Salim, thanks a lot for replying. Your dish sounds great! I love rice and didn´t know what "dal" was. II´ll try to make it, at least something similar.
    Don´t know when I´ll be able to return to London, I went once in 2001 and haven´t been able to return since. Thanks for the advice on the restaurant, hope it hasn´t closed down when I come back to England ;) Regards.
