Description

Quick and easy, but full of flavour—and good for you too!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Oil
  • ½ whole Onion, Diced
  • 1 clove Garlic, Minced
  • 1 teaspoon Garam Masala
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Coriander
  • 3-⅝ ounces, weight Red Lentils
  • Boiling Water, Enough To Cover The Lentils
  • ½ whole Vegetable Stock Cube

Preparation

In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the spices and cook for 1 minute further, stirring constantly. Add the lentils, and add enough boiling water to easily cover them. Sprinkle the stock cube over the top. Simmer for 25 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until the lentils are soft and have cooked down to a thick paste. You may need to add more water if your dal begins to dry up. I prefer my dal to be fairly thick, but you might prefer a runnier mixture.

Yum!!!! I saw this recipe and instantly wanted to try it. I’m so glad that I did because it is just delicious. Besides being really healthy, it’s an incredibly easy dish to cook. I did substitute some chicken broth that I had in the refrigerator for the vegetable bouillon cube but other than that I followed the recipe. I did have to add about a cup more water as the Dal cooked to keep it from getting too thick. This was so good that my family asked me to make it again for dinner the same day. This is a great recipe and I have a feeling that I’ll be making it often. It’s a good thing that I already have a 5lb bag of red lentils in my cupboard. I don’t think it’s going to last all that long now that I’ve found this dish!
