Dal is a delicious and comforting Indian dish that uses lentils as a base ingredient. Lentils are packed full of protein, making them a regular feature on any vegan grocery list. For our dal, we like to include carrots, onions, zucchini, eggplant and lots of garlic to create a balanced and detoxifying dish, but you can experiment with your favourite veggies to create your own version.
For 4-5 People
3 cups yellow lentils
5 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon tumric
2 tablespoons garam masala
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon chili
Wash the lentils at least 5 times and soak for 30 minutes.
Roughly chop all your vegetables while you’re waiting for the lentils.
Heat oil in a pot and add all of the spices. Let the spices fry with the oil while stirring for 1-2 minutes and keep a close eye on them to make sure they don’t burn.
After 2 minutes, add the chopped onion and garlic. Fry for 3 minutes then add the tomatoes.
After 5 minutes, add the rest of your chopped vegetables and fry them for 5-7 minutes.
Add the lentils and fry for 5 more minutes.
Cover with water and let it cook for 15-20 minutes, then cover it with water again and cook for 15-20 more minutes.
