Dhal With Spinach And Green Peas - Simple and Delicious Vegan Meal
It is thanks to Dhal that I started to appreciate lentils. I used to find them quite bland and uninteresting, but when I tried them combined with spices like e.g. turmeric, paprika, ginger or chilli, I realised how tasty and appealing lentils could be. Tarka Dhal was the first dish of this kind I had many years ago, and I simply loved it. And I still love it, whether it is on a table at my home or at a restaurant along with kormas or baltis: moving from one taste to another is just such an enjoyable experience. But what can you do if there is not enough time to cook more than one dish? Then, I guess, we can cook Dhal with Spinach and Green Peas. Including other vegetables in the lentil dal provides different textures, colours and tastes. Additionally, if you eat it with rice, this vegan meal will supply your body with complete proteins.
Dhal with Spinach and Green Peas
Delicious dhal with spinach and green peas that if served with rice can be a complete vegan main dish.
On a medium heat warm up the olive oil, add the chopped shallots and fry for 1 minute.
Add the garlic, ginger and chilli; fry occasionally stirring for 3-4 minutes. Be careful with adding chilli as smaller peppers are spicier than bigger ones. So you may want to add less at the beginning and - depending on how spicy you would like your dish to be – add more later.
Add turmeric and paprika fry for 2 minutes more.
Stir in the lentils, add water, bring to boil and cook for 30 minutes, stirring from time to time to make sure the dal doesn't burn. If necessary, add more water.
Add the green peas, lime juice and seasoning and at the end stir in the spinach.
