Tarka Daal With Onions

Rich in protein, this easy to make daal dish tastes gorgeous with rice or naan bread. Red lentils are easy to cook and there’s no soaking required.

Prep time: 30 Minutes
Serves 4
  1. Bring 500ml water to boil in a large saucepan over high heat.
  2. Add the lentils and return the water to boil. Partially cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 20-30 minutes until the mixture becomes thick. Take care that the lentils do not burn. Top up with extra boiled water if necessary.
  3. Melt the butter or add the oil in another pan over medium heat.
  4. Fry the onion and chilli for 7-9 minutes until golden brown. Add the cooked lentils and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  5. Season with the salt and add all the Spice Drops® and mix well. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve hot with chapattis or plain Basmati rice.
