Dahl Soup - Fijian Indian Version

Dahl Soup - Fijian Indian Version created by Kiwi Kathy

This is the most delicious Indian soup ever. I first tasted it when staying at the Tanoa Hotel in Nadi, Fiji, and have been hooked on it ever since. Extremely easy to prepare and will be enjoyed by anyone who loves Indian Cuisine. Can be made as hot or mild as you prefer simply by adjusting the chili powder.

    wash your dhal first, and then soak it for 4-6hrs, that way your dhal is soft when you cook it.

    The taste is very good. I used yellow mustard seeds. I had to add more water and chicken stock cause it was sticking to the pan and the peas were still a bit crunchy. I let it cook 30 minutes more stirring ofteh. Thanks Kiwi Kathy :) Made for the Australian Recipe Swap for November 2011
