Delicious Dhal


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 1 cup yellow mung beans split and hulled (yellow lentils can substitute)
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 red chiles
  • 1/4 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vegan mustard seeds
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped fine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)


Rinse and sort the mung beans or lentils discarding
any that are discolored, as well as foreign items. Put them
into the water with the chiles, tumeric, and salt and bring to a
boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often for 30 minutes.
Dal should be thick, but it may be necessary to add water
(1/2 cup at a time) during cooking. After the beans are
cooked (consistency will be like mashed potatoes), continue
simmering over very low heat while you heat the oil,
browning the mustard seeds, and garlic. Mustard seeds
act quite a bit like popcorn when heated, so be prepared for
them to leap out of the pan. Remove the chiles and add the
oil mixture to the beans. Turn off the heat. Add in the curry
powder and lemon juice and taste to adjust spices if needed.
Serve w/bread (whole wheat tortillas are a nice choice),
dosas, or rice and enjoy!

Serves: 4-6

Preparation time: 45 minutes
