The Red Lentil and Spinach Dal

Indian cuisine is my new cooking thing. It’s flavourful, colourful and also very healthy. It’s full of vegetables, spices and herbs (cumin powder, coriander powder, ginger powder, black mustard seeds, red chilli powder and turmeric powder among others), it’s high in fibre and low in saturated fat.

This is my very first Dal, I actually combined 2 recipes as I didn’t have any coconut milk – which most recipes require.

The Sweet Potato Toast

  • etc. etc. etc.
