    Awesome! We make this all the time now! Even better as a left over because all the flavors combine over night. :)

    I loved this recipe as it is so easy to make and uses one of my favorite indian spice mixes: garam masala. I like my dahl a bit thicker so I used just one lbs of chopped tomatoes and used about 2,5 oz of santen (coconut concentrate, comes in small blocks). Instead of a tsp of salt I simply added one cube chicken stock. It turned out fantastic! I garnished with sliced avocado and cilantro, amazing!!

    Definitely a comfort food! We really loved this soup and it was filling enough to have for dinner. I used tomato sauce because I realized I was out of canned tomatoes half way into making the soup. It still came out great.

    Top marks for ease in making and taste. I left out the coconut for less calories and subbed with a tablespoon of yoghurt - worked fine and thickened it a bit! Also reduced the tomato to 3 tbs and added spinach leaves and small cubes of potato and carrots as I don't like tomato to dominate. (Psst, if you add cubes of bacon at the beginning of frying, the soup becomes German-Indian inspired! Naughty, I know.)
