A quick and easy vegetarian dahl recipe, made with cauliflower and coconut cream, is ready in just 20 minutes.

Ingredients

  • 1 small cauliflower
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tsp sambal oelek or mashed red chilli
  • 300g pack chilled dhal
  • 2 tbsp coconut cream
  • A handful of chopped fresh coriander leaves
  • Serve with warm naan bread, if you like.

Method

  1. Discard the leaves and central core from cauliflower and break the rest into medium florets. Heat sunflower oil in a deep frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the cauliflower and some seasoning and stir-fry for 3-4 minutes, until lightly browned in places.
  2. Add a splash of water, cover, turn the heat to low and cook gently for 6 minutes or until the cauliflower is just tender. Drain and set aside on a plate.
  3. Stir in sambal oelek or chilli from a jar to the pan, along with the dhal, coconut cream and the cauliflower. Stir, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Scatter with a handful of chopped fresh coriander leaves and serve with warm naan bread and extra sambal oelek, if you like.
