I cheated a bit with the dahl and bought ready cooked lentils, if using from scratch it can take 2-3 hours of cooking.

Serves 2

For the Lentil Dahl

1 x packet of Green lentils (250g)

  1. Pour oil into a pan and heat, add in ginger, garlic and cook for 1 min.
  2. Add in the butter and let melt, add in the tamarind paste and chilli and mix through, then add in the lentils and chopped tomatoes. Mix through and heat for 4-5 mins. Ready to serve.

300 salad potatoes

1 tbsp olive oil

200 g chopped tomatoes

1 red chilli chopped

1tsp ground coriander

1 tbsp cumin

1 medium onion chopped

2 tbsp fresh coriander for garnish

  5. add the chopped tomatoes and cook uncovered for 7 mins or until tender
