Recipe Ingredients for Carroty Cardamom Daal

2 tbsp Grapeseed Oil
1 cup, chopped Onions
1 cup, chopped Carrots
1 cup Lentils, Pink
1 serving Carrot Juice 100% Pure Pressed Flash Pasteurized

Recipe Directions for Carroty Cardamom Daal

  1. In a large heavy pan (cast iron is best), heat the oil over high heat. Add the onion, carrot, turmeric, lentils, coriander, cardamom and salt and pepper to taste.

  2. Continue to cook over high heat for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until the vegetables are soft and mixture becomes very fragrant.

  3. Add the carrot juice and water, bring to a simmer, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until the liquid is absorbed and the lentils are fully cooked - tender, but not mushy - about 35 to 45 minutes. Add more liquid (carrot juice or water) and cook longer, if needed.

  4. Taste for salt, and serve hot, along with a healthy dollop of the yogurt, if desired.

  5. Note: You can substitute 1 teaspoon or so of ground turmeric as long as it is very fresh (less than a few months old). Otherwise, just omit it.

  6. You can use other types of lentils - larger ones will need more cooking time and smaller ones will need shorter time. Also note that lentils are also labeled as daal at some Indian grocers.
