Simple Dahl

Thanks to Caroline of Exeter who sent in the great recipe. There are many variations of this very basic recipe. Also vary to spices for your own take on this great favourite of ours.


100g of lentils (red / black / yellow - whatever proportions you fancy)

One medium onion – chopped

Clove of garlic – crushed

Tin of chopped tomatoes

Veg stock cube

Knob of ginger

Oil for frying

Two teaspoons of curry powder (or your mix of Indian spices - garam masala, turmeric, cumin, etc)

Mustard seeds

Salt & pepper to taste

3 cups of water


Fry the onions, ginger and garlic adding the mustard seeds and spices when they are golden colour.

We also sometimes add a chopped pepper and fry this as well. While this is frying, put the lentils in a saucepan with the water and the stock cube. Then add the fried onion mixture and the tomatoes to the lentils and cook for about 45 mins or until the lentils are soft. We sometimes use a 'blitzer' for a few seconds to make the dahl more smooth. Enjoy.
