Dhal recipe

  1. Wash a packet of red lentils, then boil for up to 20 mins in a pot with about an equal amount of water or maybe a bit more.
  2. In a fry pan with oil cook an onion, half a bulb or more of garlic and about a teaspoon each of cumin, garam masala, cayenne pepper and curry powder. 
  3. Add half a pack of mustard seeds, if they pop it's too hot.
  4. Add a teaspoon of stock powder or dissolve a cube in water or add salt to taste.
  5. Mix it all together in the pot with the mushy lentils, using a little water to get all the flavour from the frying pan.
  6. Serve with coriander, if you like, or add vegetables.
