Quick red lentil Dhal Recipe

I invariably cook this as a side dish but occasionally I throw in some carrots and potatoes and have it as a more substantial supper.

I love this little dish and I never measure the amounts I put in so last night I checked the correct ratio of lentils to water so here is the basic recipe.

You can change the ghee to vegetable oil if you prefer or use one of the many different kinds of lentils. However you cook it up it's delicious and filling.

  • I've tried dhal and while it didn't change my life, it wasn't bad. This sounds like it's a more interesting dhal.

    • Can't disagree but I also made vindaloo with this so I was counterbalancing the heat

  • Looks great! Chapati-dal is one of the dishes that mum makes if she doesn't know what to make😄
