Vegan Indian Dahl – Tasty Comfort Food

Did you know I was a vegetarian for ten years? I’ve mentioned 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.

This dish is one of the 28 authentic Indian recipes contained in “An Indian ThermoKitchen” cookbook. Take a look at the recipe pictures from the book.

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 whichever lentil you prefer but the cooking times and the amount of liquid needed will vary.

Although dahl is usually served as an 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 an accompaniment on the second night.

  1. Gee, this looks delicious! Great minds cook alike, because I’ve got a dhal recipe scheduled too! Yours looks delicious and I love that you can make it on the stove or in the thermie. We’re big dhal fans so I’ll be giving this a go!

  2. I always use red lentils as well Julie. I love dahl, something very healing about it.

  3. I’m not a vegetarian, but I could be — there are SO MANY wonderful vegetarian recipes. Particularly Indian ones — and I love Indian chow. Particularly all the great dried pulses and legumes they use — and this is a wonderful example. Really good stuff — thanks.

  4. I am a huge fan of anything legume! This dahl looks super duper comforting and delicious, Julie.

  5. We love Indian food, your dahl looks perfect. Where we are staying for the summer there are no Indian or Thai restaurants, really starting to miss that.

  6. I have the best dahl recipe ever. I got it from the owner of a camping ground on an Queensland island. He said the recipe was given to him from a backpacker that stayed there after going to India and he would make up huge batches and freeze them to sell to guests. I’ve been too scared to try any other since then but this does look really good so I’ll give it a go 🙂

  7. Printed! My veggie husband will love this, and so will I. I do eat everything but am moving more towards vegan as I hear so, so much about the health benefits… and there are all those ethical issues too… plus lots of tasty recipes like this make it appealling too.

  8. I adore dahl. So tasty, and I love the layering of spices in it!

  9. Iv’e transitioned into a pescetarian diet, which of course involves lots of vegan and vegetarian foods. Even before dahl was always a favourite in our house. Indian cuisine is amazing — as is your recipe, I love it!
