We love Dahl in my house, it is such a versatile dish. A soup where you can really raid the store cupboard. The best thing, is that not only is it a yummy and comforting dish it is also packed full of veggie goodness. Plus it makes a filling lunch, or toast some naan bread/ add in some poppadoms and it makes a delicious dinner too. I didn’t discover Dahl until I was an adult, and I have loved it every since apart from a rocky patch during my pregnancies. The only thing was that my Dahl’s were always shop brought and never home made. Now that’s not a bad thing. It gave me the chance to find out exactly what it is that myself and my little pigs like about Dahl. Turns out we like some other vegetables mixed in with our Lentil Dahl soup.
Now became my hunt for a recipe I liked. I ended up basing my final receipe upon a few that I liked the look of, but still didn’t have everything I wanted. So I tweaked it a little. Turns out it has to be peas in my Dahl and I can’t substitute it with sweetcorn in a pinch. So here below is my own take on Lentil Dahl. It might not be completely traditional, but myself and my little pigs certainly enjoy it. I hope you lovelies do too.
So there it is. Our Lentil Dahl. I realise as I write this that I don’t have any smooth soup recipes in my repertoire. Perhaps I should work on this but I prefer a good chunky stew-like soup in my defence. You probably realised this with my chorizo and lentil soup.
Thats it for now. Happy Eating!
Speak to you soon.
Wishing you well.
