Accidental Daal

Running low on provisions is quite normal for us at the minute as we have been managing on ESA and UC for a while now and with the Virus we have been careful to only go to the local shops when we really need too. Yesterday’s lunch was a cobble together and it tasted amazing. Proper comforting.


Accidental Daal recipe –

Serves 2

Ingredients – This is what we has in our cupboard so adapt as necessary.

Red lentils – we had approx. an 8th of the bag so used all of that.

1 tin coconut milk

2 chopped cloves garlic

1 large diced spud

1 heaped tsp of turmeric

1 tsp black pepper

1 heaped tsp chilli flakes

Pinch of salt

Water to top up if needed.

Method – 

Put everything in a pan, bring to the boil and then simmer – it took about 40 minutes to get really creamy. We added a bit of water near the end to prevent sticking. That’s it!
