Cooking Therapy: Red lentil Dahl
Posted on 13th January 2021 at 14:01
I made this recipe few days ago and the whole family loved it (especially the children!) So I wanted to share it. It takes 30 minutes to make it, it is satisfying, comforting and packed with proteins.
2 onions diced
1 tbsp grated ginger
3 grated garlic cloves
1 tsp Tikka Masala curry powder
1 tsp Garam Masala curry powder
2 tsp turmeric
500g red lentils
Approx 700ml Vegetable stock
250g chopped tomatoes
Juice of 1 lemon
200g spinach leaves or kale
Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until golden. Add the garlic, ginger and cook for few minutes more.
Add curry powders, turmeric and stir. Add tomato sauce, lentils and vegetable stock.
Cook for 20 minutes on low/medium heat with no lid as we want reduction of the stock
Taste and season with salt and pepper or chilli according to your taste
Add lemon juice and green leaves and cook for another 5 minutes
To serve warm with Basmati rice, poppadums and naan bread and Mango chutney.
