If you like dal as much as we do, this recipe is sure to delight. It mixes red lentils with ginger, cilantro, citrus and coconut milk—talk about a flavour powerhouse! You’ll start by sautéing the aromatics with a rich blend of spices, then add in the sauce components to bring out all the complex aromas as it simmers. A salad of baby greens and sweet currants is a bright accompaniment to this plant-based feast.

Cook the aromatics

Make the dal
Add the lentils to the pot of aromatics and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until combined. Add all but ¼ cup of the coconut milk (reserve double the coconut milk for 4 portions), the canned tomatoes, ½ the cilantro and 2 cups water (double for 4 portions); season with S&P. Bring the dal to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 to 25 minutes, until the lentils have softened. Season with S&P.

Toast the naan
While the dal cooks, place the naan directly on the oven rack and toast, 5 to 7 minutes, until warmed through. Transfer to a cutting board and drizzle with oil. Cut into wedges and season with S&P.

Make the salad
While the naan toasts, in a small bowl, combine the sherry vinegar and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P. In a large bowl, combine the baby greens and currants; season with S&P and toss to combine.

Finish & serve
Divide the finished dal between your bowls. Drizzle with the reserved coconut milk and garnish with the lime wedges and remaining cilantro. Serve the naan wedges on the side. Toss the salad with as much of the vinaigrette as you’d like and serve on the side. Bon appétit!
