How to make it

  • Place washed dhal, salt, onions and water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Lower heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so to prevent sticking.
  • Meanwhile, as the dhal cooks, heat the oil in a frying pan.
  • Add the cumin, mustard seeds and garlic. (Add the optional fresh ginger root now, if using.) Cook, stirring constantly for two minutes or until the garlic turns opaque.
  • Add the tomatoes, turmeric, garam masala and chilli powder/cayenne. Cook for an additional two minutes or so.
  • Add to the moong dhal when it is finished simmering and stir in well. Allow to cook for an additional five minutes.

    Confused by the last paragraph. Looks like ingredients are used up so can't figure out what is added in that paragraph. I have never heard of dhal, what is it? The photo looks wonderful! I'd be willing to taste that!! Thanks, Kim
