Did you know I was a vegetarian for ten years? I’ve mention this from time to time on the blog. During this period I enjoyed many bowls of the vegetarian classic, Indian Dahl. Dahl is one of my favourite healthy Indian dishes. It’s a really simple dish to make, and it’s packed full of vitamins, minerals and fibre.
There are so many ways to make this delicious Indian dish. Another fun fact is the word Dahl actually means lentil, and can refer to any type of lentil. I usually use red lentils in my dahl because they cook faster. You can use which ever lentil you prefer but the cooking times, and the amount of liquid needed will vary.
Although dahl is usually served as accompaniment to an Indian meal I like to have a nice big bowl served with a garlic naan. It’s filling and deliciously tasty. If there’s any leftovers I will use the dahl as a accompaniment on the second night.
