Veggie Dal

Servings :
Preparation Time : 15 mins, long cook 
Difficulty : Easy 

Super easy slow cooker dal, one pot cooking can't be beaten. Serve with rice - Quick Lush Pilaf Rice recipe is ideal

Ingredients

300g/10Żoz yellow split peas
1 onion, chopped
2-3 carrots, peeled and cut in thin triangles
1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
1 400g tin of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
inch of fresh root ginger, finely grated or chopped
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp ground turmeric
3 garlic cloves, crushed or chopped
10 dried curry leaves, or else 1 tbsn mild curry powder
700ml/1╝ pts hot water
1-2 vegetable stock cubes
1 hot green finger chilli, thinly sliced
Salt and pepper

Method

Add all the ingredients to a slow cooker, give it a bit of stir and cook either for four hours on high, or 6-8 on low. Just until the split peas are soft.

Serve with rice, the Quick Lush Pilaf Rice recipe is ideal. I often do this with brown rice rather than basmati, give it a little longer to cook and a 100ml more stock to soak up.

A natural yoghurt dip at the side, either with diced cucumber, or chopped fresh mint, goes well too.
