Like a warm blanket, a good dahl coats your mouth with comforting sensations. This vegetarian delight starts with butter-sautéed garlic and tomato paste, which soon welcome wholesome red lentils tickled with Indian-style spices. A splash of cream sends the taste and texture heavenward. Plop tender florets of roasted cauliflower into each bowl for more substance, and come in on the side with wedges of naan, hot from the oven and zested with lime.

Make the dahl
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium pot, heat 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) on medium-high. Sauté the garlic, 30 sec. to 1 min., until fragrant. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 min., until dark red. Add the lentils, cream, 3 cups water (double for 4 portions), ⅔ of the spices and S&P; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, 20 to 25 min., until the lentils have softened.
