One Pot Yellow Daal

Updated: Jun 27, 2020

I love love love Indian food and one of my favourite everyday dishes to make is definitely daal. I normally make my mother's recipe for red daal, however this time I figured I would experiment and come up with my own one pot recipe for a yellow one! I must admit I was a bit sceptical at first, but trust me, once you let it cook down and let all the flavours develop for a solid half hour or so in the pot it is truly a magical dish. If you wish to make a feast out of this you can easily serve it up with heaps of delicious sides such as raita, naan/roti, rice and mango chutney. Get as fancy with it as you'd like!


Ingredients 100g finely chopped white onion 110 g tomato chopped

1 cup mung dal

2 cloves garlic

2 tsp olive oil

2 cups vegetable stock

1.5 cups water

2 tsp lemon juice

Spices 2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp ginger

2 tsp garam masala

2 tsp dried coriander

½ tsp chili flakes


Heat the olive oil in a pot and add chopped white onion and garlic. Sauté until the onions are translucent and golden. Add all of your spices and cook for a few minutes. Add chopped tomato and stir well. Rinse the dry lentils and add to the pot with water, stock and lemon juice. Leave to simmer for 45 minutes, adding more liquid if needed. Serve with whatever delicious sides you would like.

Enjoy!
