Red Lentil Dal is one of my favourite weeknight dinners. It’s so easy to make, quick, healthy and I normally have all the ingredients already in stock. Plus it’s great when you fancy something with a great curry flavour without all the effort of making a curry from scratch.
This is great healthy comfort food. Warm and lightly spicy, I served it over rice with natural yoghurt and mango chutney. This also makes excellent leftovers, I took it for lunch the next day and it was even better once the flavours had had time to meld together.
What are your go to weeknight dinners? I love experimenting with food and coming up with different things to make with the ingredients I have around the kitchen but it’s nice to have some stock favourites to rely on. Sometimes you can’t beat a good spag bol, a simple chilli or a quick pasta dish.
Next time you’re tempted by an take-away curry, try this dal instead, I promise you won’t regret it!
