Provided by Jaya-Jaya

Categories     Lentil

Time 1h

Yield 6-10 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 kg moong dahl (this can be split peas, mung beans, lentils, whatever dried pulse you have)
6 cups steamed basmati rice
1/2 bunch fresh spinach (AS much fresh or frozen spinach as you wish to add)
1 (400 g) can chopped tomatoes (or equivalent fresh...more or less)
1/2-1 tablespoon cumin seed (more or less)
1/2-1 tablespoon chili flakes (more or less, *optional*)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or one clove fresh garlic or half TSP asafoetida, more or less)
1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
2 tablespoons ghee (OR Olive, peanut, or macadamia oil)
salt (to taste)

Protein16.4

Steps:

  • NB ALL spices and quantities are adjustable, you can leave out one or more spices. If you like a thinner dahl, add more water. If you like a thicker dahl, add less water. This serves more if used as a side dish.
  • Pick through dried pulses for stones or other foreign material in a plastic bowl or ice- cream container.
  • Rinse several times by swishing water in this container, like washing rice.
  • Place in dutch oven or extra large saucepan and cover with water about two inches over the top.
  • Bring to the boil and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Drain pot, and save the water for your plants.Cover with fresh water and bring to boil.
  • Simmer for about 30-4o minutes until dahl is tender, or mushy, however you like it. You can add more boiling water from your kettle as you are cooking, if you think it's getting dry. Some kinds of pulse take longer than others, and some absorb more water.
  • Then stir in tomato and spinach,
  • Whilst dahl is still simmering gently, place oil in a small frypan, and heat. Add the spices to the hot oil and fry whilst stirring until the cumin seeds darken and begin to roast 30sec-1&1/2 mins - be careful, the mustard seeds may start to pop and spit.
  • As soon as the spices begin to darken and roast, tip the contents into your dahl pot and stir. BE CAREFUL, YOU ARE ADDING FAT TO WATER. STAND BACK FROM THE POT AS YOU ADD.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Serve over steamed Basmati rice.

  • Rinse the lentils in a sieve, then put them in a large saucepan with the turmeric, several grinds of salt and 3 cups (700ml) of water. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes, until soft and broken down.
  • Meanwhile, gather and prep your tarka ingredients. You want everything chopped and measured, ready to go, before you start cooking because you will be adding ingredients to the pan in very quick succession. You may even wish to line everything up in the order it goes in the pan.
  • Now make your tarka. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and fry the onions until soft and slightly browned. Add the sliced garlic and stir until slightly browning before adding the minced garlic, chili and ginger. Once fragrant, push all of the onions, garlic and ginger to the sides of the pan and add the cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds to the middle of the pan to toast them, just for a few moments until the toasty scent comes out. Then turn off the heat and immediately add the butter and garam masala, coriander and smoked paprika (+ chili powder, if using). The residual heat of the pan will melt the butter so it can very lightly fry the ground spices.

  • Wash the dahl or lentils thoroughly. Place in a bowl, cover with cold water and leave to soak for 30 minutes, then drain through a sieve.
  • While the dahl or lentils are soaking, prepare the vegetables. Dice the onions. Chop the garlic into small pieces. Cut the stalk off each chilli and cut down the length to open up the chilli. Remove the white parts and seeds, then finely dice the chilli. Peel the ginger and grate it on a fine-holed grater. Peel the butternut pumpkin and sweet potato, then cut into 2cm cubes. Remove any green leaves from the cauliflower, then cut it into small pieces, discarding the base of the stalk.
  • Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Add the dahl or lentils and simmer for about 10 minutes or until just cooked through. Once it's done, set aside until needed.
  • Place a dry frying pan over low heat, then add the coriander seeds and stir with a wooden spoon until they are fragrant (this should take 1-2 minutes). Tip onto a plate to cool completely, then grind to a powder. If you don't have a spice grinder, place the seeds in a plastic sandwich bag, seal and then bash with a wooden rolling pin until crushed.
