Curries in winter can warm you up like nothing else. Curry powder brings the heat, but it also has some medicinal properties that can help to keep you healthy too. Curry powder (usually a combination of Turmeric, Coriander, Cumin, Salt, Fenugreek, Ginger, Black Pepper, Chili and or other spices) can assist the body by being anti-inflammatory, aiding digestion, providing a heap of antioxidants and having natural antibacterial properties. So if you have delicate taste buds, it might be worth stepping outside of your comfort zone and trying your hand at a few spicy dishes - the more you try it, the better you will be able to handle it and we don’t want you missing out on the health benefits of spicy food! So - give this Dahl a try. It’s super easy, seriously tasty and has a great line up of nutritious ingredients!
This recipe uses a base of tomatoes and lentils. Lentils are brilliant little fiber packed sources of protein, iron, folate, manganese, phosphorus, thiamin and vitamin B6. Tomatoes are a delicious source of potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin K and lycopene. We’ve added in some of our turmeric vegetable broth to up the level of B vitamins and Zinc, the flavour matches this dish perfectly and the added nutrients really compliment all the other amazing ingredients.
Basmati Rice is a great choice to serve with your Dahl. The combination of rice and lentils makes this dish a complete protein source and basmati rice is a great source of vitamins and minerals. Such a great choice for a cold winter’s night. Enjoy!!
