Fidel Castro - Hester's Dal

This is a scrummy indian-style dish with hardly any ingredients. Proof that meat free food can be rather good sometimes.

Serve with whatever other curries / rice / bread you are cooking.

What to do with them
  • 1 cup red split lentils (washed)
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 level tsp turmeric
  • 1 level tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp chilli powder
  • Put them all in a pan and simmer until the lentils all dissolve.
  • 1/2 onion
  • While the lentils are bubbling away chop the onion finely and fry until almost black (caramelised).
    Set aside.
  • some garlic
  • Chop finely then fry until dark brown.
    Watch it carefully at the end because it goes from light brown to burnt very quickly.
    Set aside.
  • 2 fresh green chiillies, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, quarterered
  • When the lentils are pretty much dissolved, add
    - 1 tblsp of the caramelised onions
    - 1 tsp of the fried garlic
    - the chillies
    - the tomatoes
    and cook a few minutes until the tomatoes are soft.
  • 1 tblsp fresh coriander
  • Stir in the fresh coriander and serve.
