Hearty & Cozy Lentil Dahl

  • Serves: 4-6


  • 2 cups dry red lentils
  • 4 cups veggie stock (1L)
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbs curry powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup Cocobella Natural Coconut Yoghurt


  1. Brown your onion, garlic, spices and bay leaves in a pot, until the onion becomes translucent and everything is super fragrant.
  2. Add your dry red lentils and combine with the onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add your stock, bring the Dahl to a boil then reduce to a low heat and cover with a lid. Cook for about 20-30 minutes, stirring it very so often.
  4. Once cooked, remove from the heat and stir through your coconut yoghurt.
  5. Optional: roast some Kent pumpkin wedges in the oven until soft to serve with your Dahl.
  6. Serve your Dahl with some fresh basmati rice, roast pumpkin, more coconut yoghurt and some fresh coriander.
