Coconut Lentil Daal (or; Lentils of Endearment)Make on Drop
Always partial to a bit of daal with most things curry, this is a stunning dip with naan bread (see here) Great with curry, by itself with steamed rice or just serve with steamed veggies to add a flavour boost. You can add some cooked chicken to this and serve with rice, lemon wedges and chopped fresh coriander (cilantro) for a wonderful easy meal! Not strictly 'daal' with the addition of coconut cream, but I can assure you, you'll be singing my praises as soon as you taste this! In fact you'll be calling me a real 'dahl'! (Yes folks that is how us Aussies say ‘Darling’.)
