Red lentil dhal - Super easy, one pot, quick and delicious.
* Simply soak your red lentils (or any lentils) for a couple of hours.
* Add some olive oil, ginger, turmeric, garam masala, dried cumin and dried coriander to a pan - let it sizzle away for a minute
* Then add the veggies (I used green pepper) and the lentils), along with salt, chilli powder and dried fenugreek (optional)
* Add enough water to cover the lentils, put the lid on and let it simmer for roughly 15 mins until the lentils are cooked.
Remember you can play around with the spices. If you don’t have these specific ones you can sub for whatever you have - I know most students won’t have all these and you can buy mixed spice if you don’t want to buy them all separately. Also, fresh coriander on top would be so good but I didn’t have any.
Do you guys like dhal/ Indian food in general? Do you prefer a creamier coconutty curry or spiced curry? I’d love to know 💛
