Another good find in BBC Good Food’s Feb edition is this dhal. Normally dhal is something I’d order as a side at a restaurant, but today it’s the main course with homemade sourdough flatbreads to dip into it.
Somehow Ocado doesn’t sell black lentils. Maybe when they switch to M&S later in the year they will ;)
Now I’m sure the various local supermarkets will have various dhal pulses, but it seems weekends at the moment are for not leaving the house due to various storms, so I just Amazoned (yep, I verbed it) a pack.
And it needs soaking overnight, with bicarb. So before:
While that was soaking this morning, I popped to our local Budgen’s, specifically Jay’s Budgens, to pick up some of his homemade samosas to go with our dinner. Here’s a picture of them:
Yeah… we ate them as soon as I got home. They are so good.
Anyway, on with cooking… browning butter:
Boil up the dhal and add cream & more butter.
Boil down for a while:
And hey hey it’s food time!
Yes the bread tastes as good as it looks! And the dhal it great too.
Well done me!
