This delicious Lentil Dahl is somewhere between an exotic dish and 'that grandma's stew'. It feels like comfort food... only without the usual extra calories ;)



Ingredients

- 1⁄2 Red onion (finely chopped)

- 2 tbsp water

- 2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)

- 1 1⁄2 tbsp ginger (peeled and grated)

- 3 tsp curry powder

- 1⁄2 tsp cumin powder

- 1⁄4 tsp salt

- 1⁄4 chilli powder

- 3⁄4 cup red lentils

- 1 1⁄2cups vegetable stock

- 1⁄2 cup coconut milk

- 1⁄2 lime

- 2 tbsp coriander (chopped)

Instructions


1 - Heat a pan over medium heat, add the chopped onion, garlic and ginger with a

pinch of salt, and cook for 2 minutes.

2 - Then add the 2 tablespoons of water and cook the onion mix until it softens and the water evaporates.

3 - After 5 minutes add the curry powder, cumin and chilli powder and cook for another minute until very fragrant.

4 - Add the lentils, vegetable stock and coconut milk to the pot. Stir to combine.

Tips

Any leftovers can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

If you're a toppings person: serve with extra coriander, chilli flakes and lime wedges or

seeds crackers.

If you find the lentils are too thick just add more vegetable stock until you reach your desired

consistency.
