Hare Krishna Food.

We are having a bit of a dahl phase in this house, (a.k.a. "Hare Krishna Food").

You can eat it cold as a dip with poppadums, rice crackers etc..., or hot as a meal, with anything you like added to it.

Last night we ate it with spinach stirred through and it was YUM, even for Dave who hates spinach.

I use my mum's recipe:


1 cup red lentils
1 tbs oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp red curry paste
2 cups water
1 tsp salt

Wash lentils under cold running water and set aside to drain

Saute onion and garlic until soft. Add spices and curry paste and stir for a couple of minutes.

Add lentils and stir for a couple more minutes.

Add water and salt and bring to the boil.

Lower heat and simmer gently, stirring occasionally until water is absorbed (about 15-20 mins).


And enjoy the price even more. Red lentils cost about $2.00 per kg !!!!
