23 May 2013

Carrying on the with favourite supper series, one of my all time favourites has to be this lentil dhal.  Another recipe which Mani's mom passed onto me and seriously it is totes amazeballs people.  Yes, it is.

You can have it as side dish with a curry or by itself with chapati/roti/naan/rice or even some fresh chunky bread.

You will need:
♥ 300g lentils - brown/green/puy/red whichever you choose or a mixture
♥ 1 onion, finely chopped
♥ 1 tomato, chopped
♥ 2 garlic gloves, minced
♥ 1 tspn cumin seeds
♥ 1 tspn ground coriander
♥ 1 tspn garam masala
♥ 1 tspn tumeric
♥ fresh chillies or chilli powder to taste - depending on how spicy you want it
♥ 1 cube stock mixed into approx 1 litre boiling water

♥ Fry the onion and garlic, add the chopped tomato and then all the spices.
♥ Pour in the lentils and the stock.
♥ Leave to simmer until the lentils have split.
♥ Serve with fresh coriander (this makes the dish!) and side of your choice.

Yum. x


  1. Hey hun, do you have to serve as soon as the lentils have split or can you let it simmer for a while? So new at cooking I haven't a clue! =) Looks yummy! Vp(oup)x

    1. Hey! You can let it simmer for a while longer - it won't do it any harm! :)
