🌱Quick+easy Masoor dal…extra creamy🌱This dal requires little effort to put together and and uses red lentils which cook super fast. It was so delicious. I added blended cashews (optional) for a more substantial, creamier dal. 🌱Recipe: (Optional for a creamier dal: Soak 1/3 cup cashews in very hot water before you start cooking for about 20 minutes until dal has finished cooking.) 🌱Sauté 1 large yellow onion in a little neutral oil or veggie broth until translucent, about 7 minutes. Add 5 minced garlic cloves, 1 tbsp minced ginger, 2 green chilies (deseeded and minced) and sauté another minute, adding more oil or broth as needed. Add 1 tbsp curry powder, 1 tsp garam masala, 1 tsp mustard seed, 1 tsp ground coriander, 1/2 tsp ground cumin. Sauté another minute. Add 3 chopped tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes while mixing in the tomatoes. Add 2 cups rinsed red lentils and 4 cups vegetable broth (or water). Simmer, covered, until lentils are cooked, about 20 minutes. Stir frequently while lentils are cooking and add more veggie broth or water as needed. (Optional for creamier dal: transfer 1-1/4 cups cooked dal from saucepan into high speed blender along with the 1/3 cup soaked cashews and blend on high until smooth. Add veggie broth or water as needed to blend smoothly. Return to saucepan with and stir into cooked dal while heating, adding more veggie broth or water until desired consistency. Remove from heat. Add salt to taste, chopped cilantro and a splash of fresh lime juice.
