Easy Lentil Dahl

This is one of the easy exotic meals that tastes so much better than you can ever imagine. For anyone who claims to not like lentils, I advise them to give this a try. You never knew lentils could taste so good. Delicious with some naan bread as a main or as a side with protein.

Ingredients to serve 4

β€’ 8 oz red lentils

β€’ 1 tsp turmeric

β€’ 1 tsp ground cumin

β€’ 1 onion

β€’ 1 tbsp sunflower oil

β€’ ΒΌ tsp salt

β€’ Coriander (optional)


Bring the lentils to boil in 800 ml of water (no more!). A few minutes after it starts to boil, skim off any scum then add turmeric and salt. Turn down the heat and cook on low for 15 minutes until the lentils have the consistency of a thick soup. In a skillet, heat the oil and add the cumin. Leave on a very low heat while you peel and finely chop the onion. Then add the onion to the skillet and cook until golden brown. Add the onions to the lentils but do not stir. Cover lentil pan and cook for a further 5 minutes. Stir and serve. Chop fresh coriander to sprinkle on as a garnish.
