The only thing better than huddling around this warm, colourful red lentil stew is the fact that you have toasted naan wedges to dip into it. For a light, bright side, you’ll throw together a refined salad of spinach, currants and sherry vinegar dressing in less time than it takes you to stream your favourite show. Now pull up a chair (or get comfy on the sofa) and indulge!

Cook the aromatics

Make the dal
Add the lentils to the pot of aromatics and cook, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes, until combined. Add all but ¼ cup of the coconut milk (shake before opening; reserve double the coconut milk for 4 portions), the tomatoes, up to ½ the cilantro (to taste) 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 stew 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, make the vinaigrette by combining the vinegar and 3 tbsp olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P. In a large bowl, combine the spinach 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. Squeeze on the juice of as many of the lime wedges as you’d like. Garnish with the remaining lime wedges and cilantro (to taste). 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!
