One of my favourite vegetarian dishes.  Lentils is packed with proteins, iron and other great nutrients.  Love the taste, you can either make it with coconut or tomatoes. I like  dhal  with the tomatoes because, it’s whole and has a bite to it.  This dish can be served with rice or chapattis, wraps or flat bread.  In my opinion it goes well with chapattis, wraps or flat bread.


½ a cup red split lentil dhal

1 tsp ground paprika

1 tsp  ground curry powder

1 tsp ground coriander

½ onion

3 tomatoes

2 tbsp. tomato paste

2 tbsp. olive oil

Salt for seasoning



In a saucepan over medium heat, add the onions fry until soft.  Add the garlic fry for a few seconds.  Add the spices, cook for a few seconds or until fragrant.

Add the tomato paste and tomatoes.  cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the dhal and cook according to packet instructions
