Red Lentils Dhal

Posted on: January 17th, 2020 by rachana

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)

fresh coriander

110 gr canned tomatoes

2 bay leaves

1 tsp mustard seeds

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp coriander seeds grounded

14 ml olive oil

 

Instructions:

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.

Serve with fresh coriander.

 

Enjoy & stay warm!

 


*red lentils are more orange in colour and when cooked almost yellow.
