Spicy Lentil Dahl

With the weather cooling down, it's a great time for warming foods. Dahl is an Indian stew made with lentils. You can go fancy and add fresh seasonings to the dahl, but I use curry powder to keep it simple. It’s a tasty, warming dish for any time of day!



2 cups red lentils (the small pinkish lentils, not the bigger brown ones)

1 onion, diced

3 tablespoons curry powder

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 tablespoon oil

4 tomatoes, chopped fine

2 cloves garlic, minced


In a pot, rinse the lentils with water a few times, straining the water out with your fingers. Cover the lentils with water and bring to a boil. Simmer until they’re cooked, about 10 minutes.

Stir fry the onions, garlic, chili powder, and curry powder in a pan with oil over medium high heat. Mix in the tomatoes and continue to cook for 5-10 minutes. When done, stir the mixture in with the lentils. Garnish with cilantro and lemon juice.
