Simple Spiced Dal

Are you eating on the run? Consider making a pot of spiced dal at the start of the week and keeping it in the fridge to reheat for a quick meal. The flavour develops with time ensuring it gets tastier as the week goes on.

Serves 4

1 cup moong dal (or red lentils)

1 tbsp mustard oil

1 tbsp fresh ginger, grated

2 cloves garlic, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp fennel seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp mustard seeds

sea salt, to taste

2 ripe tomatoes, chopped

3 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped

1 tbsp lemon juice

steamed basmati rice (optional),

to serve

pappadums, to serve

1 Put dal in a saucepan with 
3 cups water. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 
20 minutes or until very soft.

2 Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add ginger, garlic and onion and cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add turmeric, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, mustard seeds and a pinch 
of sea salt. Cook for 2 minutes.

3 Add spice mixture 
and tomato to dal. Cover saucepan and cook for a further 10 minutes.

4 Remove dal from heat
