This post is dedicated to my dearest friend Sean who gave me a dhal recipe over 3 years ago that I used as a base to create this one. I must say, whenever I make dhal it never tastes as good as Sean’s, but it’s still pretty good.
I absolutely love Indian food, especially because there are so many vegetarian options and it’s always a flavour bomb. Indian food is surprisingly easy to prepare, as long as you have all the spices you need.
This dhal recipe is very simple but super tasty and easy. And very healthy too as lentils are so rich in protein and iron. I make it all the time in big batches and have tried multiple versions with different veggies before. The original recipe doesn’t have coconut milk, but I like adding it for a bit more richness.
There’s nothing better than a bowl of dhal with some brown basmati rice or naan bread on a chilly winter night.
