Hello Dahl-ing!

With the chill factor settling in (so long summer, you were wonderful) it's time to resist the winter freak out and focus on the positive, there is only one, and it's eating. Winter means food. Slow cooked, hearty, flavoursome food and we look to none other than Lunch Lady's Kate Berry when we want to talk food!

To celebrate the launch of Lunch Lady Issue 3, we asked Kate to share one of her favourite recipes from the edition, and Dahl-ings, it's fantastics. Presenting Kate Berry's Hello Dahling!

Hello Dahl-ing!

Recipe by Kate Berry

WHAT YOU NEED
For the dhal:
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced into thin half moons
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 2 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 fresh green chilli, finely diced
  • 375g / 13oz red lentils
  • thumb-size piece of fresh ginger, finely grated
  • pinch of salt
To serve:
  • handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1 tomato, finely diced
  • cooked rice
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
  1. In a large heavy-based saucepan, add the oil and sliced onions with a pinch of salt. Saute over a low heat until transparent.
  2. Add the spices and garlic, and stir into the onion mixture for 1–2 minutes.
  3. Pop in the red lentils and enough water to cover them by about 5cm / 2″.
  4. Stir, and turn the heat up to high. Once water comes to the boil, reduce heat to low and stir occasionally for about 30 minutes, or until lentils are soft. It should be a porridge-like consistency—add more water if necessary. If it’s too thin, keep on the heat and reduce down.
  5. Add the ginger and season with a good pinch of salt.
  6. Combine the chopped coriander and tomato, and set aside in a bowl.
  7. Add rice to bowls and ladle the dhal over the top.
  8. Garnish with a handful of the fresh tomato and coriander mix.

 

Yum. Yum. Yum .
