It's basically just curried chickpeas and it tastes yummy. You'll find several recipes in the recipe section if you do a search or just take a look at some of the internet recipe sites as many recipes can be made SW friendly without too much effort.

I've made lentil dahl before ...receipe somewhere on site ( use search facility )
I brough the dahl from Asda but Morrisons also sell a syn free one the brand is Sundar.
It's lovely and great comfort food to have with SW chips dipped in :)

2 can (15-oz) chickpeas
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 small onion; minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 tablespoon ground coriander (up to)
1 teaspoon red pepper powder (cayenne)
1 1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt; or to taste
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Directions: How to Cook Chickpea Dal (Kabuli Chana Dal)

Date: Sun, 23 Jun 1996 11:23:51 -0400

From: Expose Email This recipe is from INDIAN LIGHT COOKING, which I've told you about before. It is our *Fave* dal recipe so far. Quick & Easy to fix, too!

Remove 1 c. chickpeas (including the liquid) from 1 can of chickpeas. Drain. Coarsely chop. In a food processor or blender, process the remaining chickpeas and the liquid to a puree. Set aside.

Heat a nonstick saucepan over moderate heat. Add the cumin seeds and stir until they crackle, about 10 seconds. Add onion, ginger & garlic. Stir until onion is translucent. Add turmeric, coriander and red pepper. Cook, stirring, for about 20 seconds, being careful not to burn. Add tomato sauce. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer 1 minute. Add chopped & pureed chickpeas. Cook, stirring, 2-3 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Add salt to taste.* Remove from heat. Add lime juice and stir. YUM!

Serve with rice, whole wheat bread, and a yogurt salad (raitta). "For a special treat, try Piquant Lime Rice."

*we watch our sodium, so instead of using salt we doubled the lime juice. This would make a great party dip with pita triangles, if it were pureed a bit more completely.

I had the morrisons sundar one. It SMELLS like mcdonalds curry sauce, you know in the little pot. It tastes like a less tangy version of that IMO. I liked the sauce but i did not like the texture of the chickpeas

Also, dont forget that if you blend the chickpeas they become synned!
The Chickpea Dhal from Asda is near the tinned meats/burgers.
