    Daydream's Note:

    This tasty lentil curry uses a mixture of four types of lentils. The original recipe specified equal quantities of brown and red lentils, yellow mung beans (moong dhal) and green split peas. As I did not have those on hand, I improvised and used toor dhal, urid dhal, moong dhal and channa dhal (Bengal gram dhal). The result was a 'moreish', satisfyingly 'meaty' lentil curry.

    1. 1
      Mix the lentils together in a large bowl and wash in several changes of water.
    2. 2
      Heat the ghee in a large, heavy-based, preferably non-stick saucepan, and add the onion, garlic, ginger and chili.
    3. 3
      Cook, stirring, until onion is soft, and starting to brown.
    4. 4
      Add the seeds and powdered spices, and cook, stirring until fragrant.
    5. 5
      Add the lentils along with the undrained tomatoes and stock, and stir to combine.
    6. 6
      Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about one hour, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender.
    7. 7
      Add small amounts of water from time to time if the mixture appears to be sticking, or is too thick before the lentils soften.
    8. 8
      Add the coconut cream and cilantro just before serving, stirring and heating through over low heat.

      I also made this without the coconut cream and with plain water instead of stock but it was still flavorful and very good. I also used 2 fresh tomatoes which I added to the onion after the spices and cooked for a couple of minutes before adding the water and dal. I cooked it in a presure cooker and allowed it to cook for about 3-4 whistles. Oh and for those without a scale 5 ounces of dal is equal to 2/3 cup.

      This recipe was very simple to make and very tasty. I didn't put any coconut cream in (I'm trying to watch my weight), but I'm sure it was just as delicious!
