1 small piece of ginger
1 clove of garlic
4 tomatoes
1 carrot
1⁄2 cup red lentils
1 can chickpeas (cooked)
1 can coconut milk
1-2 tsp curry powder
1⁄2 tsp chili flakes
1⁄2 tsp cumin
Juice of 1⁄2 lemon


• Cut up the spring onions into thin rings. Chop ginger and garlic. Peel the carrot and cut into small pieces. Dice the tomatoes.


• Heat up 1 tbsp coconut milk in a pot. Add spring onions, ginger and garlic together with the chili flakes, cumin and curry powder and fry.


• Wash lentils and chickpeas well. Add to the pot together with the tomato and carrot pieces and let fry for a bit as well.


• Add the remaining coconut milk and give it a good stir. Put the lid on the pot and let simmer for around 20 minutes until the lentils are very soft.


• At the end, stir in the lemon juice and maybe add some more curry powder to taste.

• Now the dhal is ready to serve!
