Creamy Coconut Lentil Dhal

To keep this dish 'quick', you need to do some prep, but once this prep is done, I assure you, this is a relatively quick and delicious, traditional South-Indian dish.



Preparation Time: 8 hours soaking lentils
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
200g orange lentils, soaked overnight
Half a vegetable stock cube
Tablespoon coconut oil
500g coconut milk
Half tsp turmeric
Half tsp paprika
8 Black peppercorns
Pinch of sea salt
2 wholemeal naan breads

Method
Crush the garlic in a pestle and mortar and repeat with the black peppercorns.



Add the garlic, crushed pepper and remaining spices to a frying pan along with the oil.

Cook over a low heat for 10 minutes, to bring out the flavour and to soften the garlic.



Add the washed lentils and stir.



Add half a cup of water, along with the coconut milk and allow to cook for 20 minutes over a medium heat.



If it does not thicken as much as you would like, it still produces a rich flavour.



(Optional) Add greens - some broccoli or spinach works really well in this.

I like to serve this with either rice or naan when I'm feeling particularly lazy.

If you're serving it with some ready-made naan bread, just heat it up in the oven for 3 minutes for an authentic South-Indian inspired dish.
