My name is Kulvinder Kaur, I'm based in Bristol, a wife and a mother of 3 children. Cooking is a big part of our home. I always need to be one step ahead and at the same time keep everyone healthy. The dish I have arranged is one of many great Dhal dishes but this is one of my favourite options.

These ingredients are based on a family of 4 if you are 2 people in a household then half the ingredient is only needed.

  • 200g of Moong Dhal (green lentils)
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 10g of ginger
  • 1 whole broccoli
  • 4 green good size chillis
  • 100g of chopped tin tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons of salt (not heaped)
  • 1 teaspoon of ground Turmeric, Haldi (not heaped)
  • 1 teaspoon of black pepper (not heaped)

Wash Moong Dhal green lentils with warm water for 1 minute. Place Moong Dhal in a pot, fill the pot half way with water covering the Dhal by a couple of inches.

  1. Grind the 5 cloves of garlic and add to the Dhal
  2. Grind the ginger into and add to the Dhal
  3. Slice green chillis into small pieces and add to the Dhal
(If you have a grinder you can grind all 3 at the same time).

  • Add the 100g grams of tomatoes
  • Add the 2 teaspoons of salt, the 1 teaspoon of ground Turmeric and the 1 teaspoon of black pepper
  • Chop broccoli into small pieces and add to Dhal
  • Stir and leave to simmer for 2 hours. Check and stir on a regular basis
You can enjoy this dish with naan bread or rice, or even both!
