Make Your Own Lentil Dhal

By December 2, 2015Food, HappyFood

Hi everyone,

Lenka here 🙂

I’d love to share an easy recipe with you. It might be your first step in becoming more plant based (vegan).

It takes only 20 – 30 min.

LENTIL DHAL

What you need:

  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups of red lentil
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • Coconut milk, mixed seeds and fresh parsley leaves, to garnish
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1 inch ginger piece, peeled and grated
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

How to make it:

  • Rinse the red lentils with cold water and let drain.
  • In a medium saucepan heat the coconut oil, add the onion, garlic, ginger and turmeric, and cook for two minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Add the lentils and water, bring to boil and let simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add garam masala and coconut milk and mix to combine.
  • Let simmer for another five minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed and you obtain a porridge consistency.
  • Serve warm, garnished with fresh parsley leaves, mixed seeds and a few drops of coconut milk.

Enjoy!

I started YogaHub out of a room at the back of someone else's house back in 2012 with nothing more than an idea. I'd been teaching Yoga since 2008 and had no intention of opening a Yoga Studio. I think, like everything I've done, I just decided one day I was going to give it a try. And try I did and if you're reading this I guess I'm still trying.
