Indian, Stew

Dhal with green lentils

What a taste explosion this dish gives in the mouth! I could feel lovely and fresh flavors of ginger, chilli, garlic and spices a long time after I stopped eating. I think it could almost be used instead of a breath freshener to give a fresh feeling in the mouth!

Serves 4

4 dl dried green lentils, rinsed
1 onion, chopped
0.5 dl of grated fresh ginger
1-2 green chillies, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
7 dl water
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp herb salt
1 tsp garam masala
1 handful bunch of coriander, chopped
Oil for frying

Heat the oil in a pan. Fry the onions for one minute. Add the garlic, chilli and ginger and fry for another half a minute. Add lentils, water and the dry spices. Boil for 30 minutes. Finally stir in the coriander. Serve the dhal together with naan bread.
