Simple Dahl

I just love spicy dahl and this recipe came together really fast.  I used yellow split peas and a cooked sweet potato and stirred in some spinach at the end.

Simple Dahl

  • 3 T coconut oil
  • 1 t black mustard seeds
  • 1 T cumin seeds (or powder)
  • 1 T coriander
  • 2 T curry powder
  • 1/2 t turmeric
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  • 4 T freshly chopped ginger
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 10 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 2 serrano chilies, diced
  • pinch salt/pepper
  • 1 lb red lentils
  • 4-6 cups veg stock
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • juice of 1-2 limes
  • Siracha to taste
  • 1 T toasted sesame oil
  • Braggs and pepper to taste

In a heavy bottomed pan over medium high heat add the coconut oil, mustard seeds and spices. When the seeds pop add the ginger, onion, garlic and chilie along with a pinch of salt/pepper.
