Dahl Recipe
From: "Pete"

Don't know how 'Indian' it is, but here is my favourite. Haven't met a person yet who doesn't like it.

  • 200 g red lentils
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 4 tomatoes, skinned and chopped
  • 900 ml water (4 cups)
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 25 g margarine
  • 1 tsp garam masala
Cook lentils, turmeric, cumin, potatoes and tomatoes in the water for 15 minutes- until potatoes are cooked.
Add coriander.

Saute chopped onion and garlic in margarine until golden.
Add garam masala and saute a further 2 minutes.
Add to lentils and mix well. Serve with rice.
