Packed with aromatic garlic and protein-rich lentils, this vegan delight is a symphony of flavours and nutrition in every bite.
Serves 4 people.

400g chana dal (split chickpeas)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1½ tsp salt
8 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
ghee/oil of choice
large handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp chilli powder

– Give the dal a rinse. Place them in a pan with 1500ml of water, turmeric powder, and salt. Bring it to a boil and then cook for 1 hour.

– Add 3 tbsp of ghee/oil to hot a pan. Add the cumin seeds and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden.

I like to serve mine with onion and pea pulao. Time to tuck in!
