    Red Lentil Dahl Recipe

       Prep Time: 10 mins

        Cooking Time: 20mins

         Total Time: 30 mins

          Difficulty: Level 1


130g red lentils (washed)

550ml stock/water

1 tsp oil of your choice - rapeseed or coconut oil

1 tomato - chopped

1 onion - chopped

4 cloves of garlic - crushed

2 cardamom pods - split

1 cinnamon stick

1/2tsp cumin seeds

a thumb size piece of ginger root - minced or grated

1tsp ground turmeric

1 fresh chilli pepper

juice 1/2 lemon

a handful of fresh coriander - chopped

Salt to taste


1. Pop the rinsed red lentils in a pot with water (room temp) and simmer on medium for 20 minutes.

2. While the lentils are cooking heat oil in a pan over medium heat - add cumin seeds, cardamom pods, and cinnamon stick and cook for around a minute, until it becomes fragrant.

4. Add an onion and cook for 1 minute, add garlic, fresh chilli and ginger and cook for 3 - 4 mins. Until onions are translucent.

5. Add turmeric, salt, and tomato to the pan and cook until the tomato is falling apart, roughly 2 - 3 minutes. Pick out a cinnamon stick (and cardamom pods if you can)

6. Stir in the tomato and spice mix to the lentils, add the lemon juice and stir well. Simmer for 5 minutes - if it is a wee bit watery then just simmer on low until it thickens to your liking, if it looks too dry just add a little water.

Mix through some of the coriander and then sprinkle some on top to serve.
