Red Lentil Dhal With Crisp Parsnips

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Sarah_Jayne

I can never have enough things to do with lentils. I found this in the February 2008 copy of BBC Good Food magazine and decided to add it for future use. The recipe says that his can be frozen if you leave off the parsnip crisps.

I used the parsnip Idea from this recipe on the 'Mixed Dhal' Recipe and was great. Next time I would mabee through on a few spices just to make it that much better TY Sarah Jayne
