Dhal (or Dal) is a tasty Indian stew made from lentils. We love to use red lentils as they are an excellent and healthy source of protein. So cozy to warm up from the inside with a bowl of our Red Lentils Dhal during a cold Norwegian winter.
Ingredients (serves 4):
320 gr red lentils
1 red onion
10 g fresh ginger (about 2 cm piece)
110 gr canned tomatoes
2 bay leaves
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds grounded
14 ml olive oil
Cook the lentils.
Splatter the mustard seeds in oil.
Add bay leaves and cumin seeds until they smell good.
Add onion and saute until soft and glazed.
Add ginger and ground coriander.
Then add the tomatoes and cook until the oil comes up.
Add the cooked red* lentils and taste with chili powder and salt.

Enjoy & stay warm!
