    Someone very kindly gave me details of how to make lentil dahl (Lindam?) BUT with no measurements. So I don't completely mess it up would someone be able to give me a recipe with ingredients g/oz?

    Thanks x

    Hi Sarah

    I made the Lentil Dahl today so maybe I can give you some better directions:

    I mug red split lentils - to 3 mugs water with a pinch or two of salt and a half teaspoon of turmeric - cook until soft (most of teh water shoudl be absorbed, if it looks like its too runny drain some out - or too dry add some more water) leave to one side.

    Slice an onion fry until soft and add one fat green chillie, a clove of garlic and grate a chunk (about a thumb size) piece of ginger as you add x 2 tins of chopped tomotoes plus a half can of water. Now warm though adding a teaspoon of medium curry powder and a teaspoon of garam masala - taste the sauce, add more curry powder, garlic if you want more - when happy with the taste add teh lentils and mix thoroughly. This will make loads! I had a bowl for lunch today, then more for tea and I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

    let me know how you get on - you can use the basic tomatoe base - and add chick peas instead (mash a few up so the sauce goes thicker). Or if on a red day put in chicken or prawns.... or totally free just use up some leftover veggies

    I've just written down all the ingredients for my food shop today, finally getting round to making it!

    I *think* this looks free on a green day, am I right? I'll have it with some brown rice - mmmmm am salivating haha!

    Thanks xx

    don't know if it was me, but i have previously suggested getting a tin if lentil dahl and adding a bit of water to it to thin the sauce out a little, then add some quorn pieces and perhaps some spinach.

    i had a tin of chickpea dahl last night with some noodles - it goes really well together...and i'm not really a fan of rice.
