Easy Healthy Recipe: Red Lentil Dal

Today I want to share one of my favorite recipes with you: Red Lentil Dal! Especially during the colder seasons, I am a soup-a-holic. The Indian cuisine is one of my favorite. It has the most amazing taste cause of using wonderful spices and herbs.


Dal or Dal Bhat is a lentil dish, usually eaten with rice in southern India, Pakistan as well as Bangladesh, East India, and Nepal where Dal Bhat (literally: dal and rice) is the staple food for much of the population. Most of all, Dal is an awesome and yummy source of protein for a balanced diet.


Ingredients:


2   Cups Red Lentils
1   small Onion
2   Tbsp Cumin
3   dried Chilis
1   Tbsp Garam Masala
1   Tbsp Curcuma
2   TbspVegetable Oil or Ghee
1   can Coconut Milk
3   Garlic Cloves
Water
Soy Sauce
Salt
Ginger
Fresh coriander


- soak lentils in water for about 2 hours.
- chop the onion
- in a pot heat oil/ghee
- grind cumin, chilies, curcuma, and garam masala, and brown them in the hot oil/ghee.
- add the finely chopped onion
- add the drained lentils
- add about half of the coconut milk and about 1 cup of water


Let everything simmer and add the rest of the coconut milk and water if the Dal gets to thick.
As soon as the lentils crumble, add salt and soy sauce to taste.

You can eat your Dal as a stew, and only add some fresh coriander. Naan bread goes well with it!
Or eat it with some (brown) rice!

Enjoy!
