Homemade Yellow Dhal

When it’s cold I start wanting to eat spicy warming food and this smells amazing as its cooking! 

I doubled the recipe so that I can freeze some.

  • First, wash  1 1/4 cups of yellow split lentils until the water runs clear. 
  • Put them in a large pan with the following ingredients:
  1. 35g grated fresh ginger
  2. 1tsp curry powder
  3. 1tsp turmeric
  4. 1 cinnamon stick
  5. 1 cup dessicated coconut blended with 2 cups water
  6. 1 medium onion
  7. 1/2 to 1 green chilli
  8. 2 cloves of grated garlic 
  9. 400ml water
  • Boil then simmer for half an hour on low. 

Once the lentils are cooked, heat 2tbsp coconut oil in another pan. Add 1 chopped clove of garlic, a little more green chilli if you like heat and half a chopped onion with 2tsp of yellow mustard seeds. 

When the onion and garlic look browned pour the mixture into the lentils and stir.

Add fresh coriander and lemon wedges.
