And we are BACK with another recipe fresh from my family collection! For those of you wanting to make healthy eating a solid part of your 2018, look no further than this delicious dahl recipe!



  • 1/2-1 cup red split lentils
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 large chopped tomato
  • 2-3 tablespoons natural yoghurt***
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • pepper


  1. Wash lentils a few times until the water runs clear.
  2. Place lentils in a pot, cover with cold water. Add 1 teaspoon turmeric and a pinch of salt.
  3. Cook lentils slowly over heat, stirring every now and again.
  4. Once soft and changed colour, remove lentils from heat.
  5. In a large frying pan, cook onion, garlic, cayenne pepper, ginger & pepper.
  6. Once cooked, add this onion mixture to the lentil pot.
  7. Cook & stir for 5 minutes.
  8. Add chopped tomatoes and cook for further 5 mins.
  9. Add 2-3 tablespoons of natural yoghurt.
  10. Cover & cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.


*TIP* Serve with plain/pilau rice or warm parathas!

*** To make a vegan version, simply swap the natural yoghurt for your favourite dairy free alternative! Coconut yoghurt is my personal favourite!
