Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large pan over high heat and add mustard seeds; fry until they begin to pop, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium and add carrots, celery, onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in lentils, coriander, salt, turmeric, cumin, cayenne, cinnamon, and cloves. Pour in water and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and cover. Simmer until lentils are soft, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • In the meantime, mix yogurt, cucumber, mint, and garam masala together for the raita.

  • Add lime juice and cilantro to the lentils. Serve with the raita.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute broth for water if you'd like.

Feel free to use chopped cucumber instead.

This is delicious. For the dhal, there is no need to change a thing. For the raita, I would suggest doubling the recipe. Thank you for the recipe. Read More
