Cooking 30 mins

Chop your vegetables
Carve an onion
Remove the stems from the tomatoes and chop them. Chop the green pepper.
Boil 30 cl of water in a large saucepan.
Once the water has come to a boil, add the lentils, chopped onion, tomatoes and peppers to the pan. Season and cook for 20 mins.
In a non-stick pan, fry the chopped onion with oil, add the curry, the mustard seeds and mix.
Add your onion preparation to the rest and pour in the coconut milk, then mix everything well and simmer for a few minutes over very low heat so that the coconut milk soaks in well, being careful not to let it boil.
Adjust the seasoning of your Dhal with coconut milk.
Serve your Dahl with coconut milk in a large dish and accompany it with naan (small Indian pancakes) and white or fragrant rice. Enjoy it hot.
If you want to add a few extra vegetables to your coconut milk Dhal, it goes very well with green beans, cauliflower or even potatoes.
