This is my own version of dal. It requires little prep, so it is very easy to make. I use my own garam marsala blend, but the store bought variety should do. Serve over rice or with naan wedges. It is even better after setting overnight in the frige.
Ingredients
1 cup lentils, rinsed
3 cups vegetable broth
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 onion
5 cloves garlic, sliced
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 can diced tomato
salt
cilantro (optional)
 
Directions
1. Place lentils and broth in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil.
2. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 40 minutes until lentils are tender and have lost their shape. Add water as needed.
3. Heat the oil in a skillet. Add the onion and garlic and saute over medium heat until the onion is translucent.
4. Add the tomato and seasonings to the onion. Stir and bring to a simmer. Add the onion mixture, cilantro, and salt to the lentils and simmer about 5 minutes.
