Spicy Lentil Dahl

Jo got this recipe from BBC goodfood and it is the best ever, number one, all time greatest Dahl. Even Stan who doesn’t like Dahl said it was good. We generally have it with boiled eggs. 

Pic from tinternet. 


1 tablespoon sesame oil, 

1 cup chopped onion

2 cloves of garlic chopped

1 tablespoon chopped ginger

4 cups of water or stock

1 cup dried red lentils

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon coriander 

1 teaspoon tumeric

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoon tomato paste


Soften the garlic, onion, and ginger in heated oil

Add water or stock, lentils, spices and salt. Bring to a low boil and simmer for 20 min until lentils are soft and tender. 

Stir in tomato paste and cook until desire consistency is reached – up to you. 

Garnish with something green and yogurt. 

Beautiful I could eat this for breaky, lunch and dinner.
