Recipe Ingredients for Lardkings 2nd Healthy Dhal

125 g red lentils
125 g green lentils
1.13 ml water
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
3 cloves garlic
2 small onions
2 tbsp olive oil
200 g tomatoes
200 g mushrooms
1 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Lardkings 2nd Healthy Dhal

  1. **for the masalla see Lardking's Masalla Base : http://caloriecount.about.com/lardkings-masalla-base-recipe-r1034989 **

  2. Finely chop the onions and put them to one side.

  3. Crush the garlic directly onto the onions.

  4. Optional - add ginger to the onion/garlic mix

  5. Wash the Lentils.

  6. Quarter the chestnut mushrooms

  7. Chop the tomatoes

  8. Bring the water to the boil

  9. Place the Lentils, turmeric (haldhi), cayenne pepper, salt and tomatoes into the water.

  10. Cover and simmer.

  11. While the dhal is simmering, heat the olive oil to quite hot and add a tiny bit of the ground masalla mix for just a few seconds to flavour the oil

  12. Add the onions, garlic and ginger. Fry this mix , stirring pretty much continually, for about 15-20 minutes until the onions are deep golden brown. soft and caramelised.

  13. Add the mushrooms to the onions.

  14. Add a a good teaspoon of the masalla mix to the fry at this point and fry for a further 5 minutes, stirring continuously.

  15. Your dhal should be about the right consistency now, so add the fried onion/garlic/mushroom mix to it and stir it in.

  16. Add about another -1 teaspoon of the masalla and stir in. Simmer for another 5 minutes.

  17. The whole process should take about 20-25 minutes from the time you start simmering the dhal - the final consistency should be like a thick soup, NOT solid or dry. If it is too thick add some more water.

  18. Serve with rice and/or your choice of accompaniment.

  19. If you really love your meaty protein then add some diced or shredded chicken breast.
