This Dahl is not only delish, but it’s also fat-free, vegan and gluten-free. But for me, the best part is there’s only 1 step required- yes, unlike every other curry, just ONE step! Yet there’s no compromise in flavour, texture or authenticity.
Creamy, full of spice and perfect for dipping into with your naan breads. Also great for covering mounds of freshly cooked basmati rice. Going to heat up a bowl right now since its perfectly suited for batch cooking and storing in the fridge to heat up for later on.
