Let’s do something simple today – not like a lot of my recipes aren’t simple already, but something that’s not only simple but also relatively fast to throw together as well and great for the crowd. What’s fabulous about this dahl is that it is practically rendered a healthy fast food because of the red lentils – they don’t require that long to cook before they’re done, and cooked past that just tender stage, they turn to mush and absorb a lot of the liquid. Which makes cooked red lentils a great substitute for mashed potatoes, but without hardly so much the effort, and I would say just as filling.
Dahl is Indian, although this particular dahl is mild – making it suitable for those who aren’t familiar with Indian food or don’t like it to be that spicy. I can’t say when exactly (I’m still planning) but soon I’ll be doing a couple of some sort of themed recipes and this one would fit the bill perfectly for a Roald Dahl-themed party.
