Super simple and amazingly tasty considering the lack of effort required.

I have 7 different types of Dhal, and ring the changes, today I am using Green Speckled.....

BTW.  I don't bother putting the lentils in the frying pan, I add the cooked chillis and cumin seeds to the big pan of lentils.....

Temple Dhal is Indian.  I also make Tarka Dhal, but I think Temple is tastier and easier (and I always have all the ingredients in stock).....

@Kasi I use whathever lentils I have in stock, but I have about 20kg of different types, so I'm very rarely struggling to find any.  Missing out the chopped Coriander in stage 4 (if I have none around) does not seem to matter a great deal...I often double up the recipe, so I have some for later  :)

In my town there’s so many cash and carry. Never out of stock for lentils, I have been eating brown lentils Dahl all my life..

Full of protein..

Never come across green lentils, that a first for me..
 

Thanks for the tips Giles.

Gonna try the temple Dahl.. then again wife will then remix it trying new format of making it even more tasteful.

I promised I’d make this last time you posted it, but didn’t get around to it. Going shopping today so I plan to make one this week....

Two things: the lentils available at the supermarket are pre soaked. I guess that makes no difference? Just cut down on the time used in step 1?

Secondly, does that make a main for 4-6 people?! I feel like it would need to be trebled to feed my ugly bunch.

It matters not how long you cook for within reason, I leave mine going for about an hour, you just need some bite to the lentils.

I'd double up for your mob  :D

Oh, and bunging some whole peeled hard-boiled eggs in a few minutes before serving, is delicious and bulks it up.....
