Makes

4 servings

Ingredients

Daal:
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 white onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric
400 g dry red lentils
1 tin coconut milk
6 cups water
½ tsp salt

For serving:
Rice
Crushed peanuts 
Cilantro
Lime juice

Method

STEP 1

Heat your coconut oil in a pot over medium heat. Add in the chopped onion and cook until softened (around 5 minutes). Add in tomato paste and cook to caramelise for 2-3 more minutes (until darker in colour and thicker).

STEP 2

Add garam masala, coriander, cumin and turmeric along with ¼ cup water. Cook for 2-3 minutes, and then stir the lentils in.

STEP 3

Add in the tin of coconut milk as well as 6 cups of water and salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 15-20 minutes (depending on your lentils) until most of the liquid is absorbed and the dal looks creamy.

STEP 4

Remove the daal from heat, taste for salt and season to taste. Let sit for 10-15 minutes.

STEP 5

Serve daal with rice, crushed peanuts, coriander and a squeeze of lime juice.
