A light and delicate lentil dish from India’s famous vegetarian state, Gujarat. With fresh flavours such as ginger and tomatoes, this makes a great light summer meal.

I am obsessed with Dhal and after perfecting my own recipe I started to research other styles of the ever popular Indian dish. This regional version is very light and thin with a really elegant ginger note. It is a perfect match to any of our curries especially vegetable side dishes such as Saag Aloo or Mattar Paneer
