Red Lentil Coconutty Dahl

Red Lentil Coconutty Dahl

Serves 4 | £1.04pp | £6.37 all in (portions priced using Tesco ingredients):

Prep time:10 mins

Cooking time:25 mins


250g Lentils

400g Chopped Tomatoes

400ml Coconut Milk

80g bag Watercress, Spinach & Rocket, chopped

300g White Rice

2tbsp Curry Powder

1 red onion, chopped


This recipe can be adapted to taste – if you prefer things a little spicier, use a hot curry powder or add some chilli flakes.


In a deep, frying pan, gently fry the red onion in a little oil until soft. Add the curry powder and the lentils, allowing them to soak up any leftover oil and plenty of flavour.

Add the chopped tomatoes and coconut milk and allow to simmer for about 15 mins. This can be frozen and reheated to enjoy later – whether you are saving leftovers or batch cooking.

Meanwhile cook your rice as you usually would.

Add the chopped salad leaves to the dhal and allow to wilt while you plate your rice, then serve up and enjoy!
