Chef’s tip

Dhal is a traditional Indian dish. As well as being healthy, it is delicious.
When red lentils are cooked, they burst, giving the dhal a texture similar to that of a puree.

We all enjoyed this but seemed to lack something ... can't put my finger on it.


Nice receipe. Used 2 Tablespoons of curry and was plenty spicy.


My daughter enjoyed this very much!
