How to Make Dahl

I make dahl a few times each week.  It is very inexpensive, easy, and rich in iron and protein.


Split Red Lentils (Masoor Dahl)
Turmeric Powder
Cumin Seeds
Chili Powder
Clarified Butter or Ghee

Step 1

Put 1 cup red lentils into a Pan.

Put 1-3 cups of water into pan covering lentils and soak 10 minutes in water.

Use moderate heat and bring to boil while adding: turmeric ½ tsp, salt to taste, and tomatoes. You want to make the lentils mushy.

Step 2


Cumin Seeds ½ tsp
Chili Powder ¼ tsp
Onions dice
Clarified Butter or Ghee 2 Tbsp or enough to give it taste

Cook until ingredients are dissolved

Step 3

Add everything together
