The dish we have with almost every meal! Soft, satisfying lentils with earthy spices and garlic tempered in hot oil. Serve with a tangy pickle for a great contrast of flavours and textures.
In India, dhal (lentils) is cooked everyday in one form or another by the richest and the poorest. Lentils are a great source of protein, so they are eaten a lot by vegetarians.
Try adding a dash of lemon juice for a tangy dhal or a finely chopped fresh tomato for a more savoury edge.

I serve a version of this with nearly every meal. I enjoy having any leftovers for lunch with fresh tomato, finely sliced courgette and toasted coconut. The key to this one is a nice hot pan when frying the spices.Ian
