Steps to cook

  • Step 1

    Place the rinsed lentils in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes, then drain.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, toast the cumin seeds, ground turmeric, mustard seeds and chilli powder in a dry frypan over medium heat, stirring, for 30 seconds or until the mustard seeds start to pop.

  • Step 3

    Add the oil to the pan of spices, then add the onion, garlic and ginger and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes until the onion softens slightly.

  • Step 4

    Add the tomato, sugar and drained lentils, then simmer for 15 minutes, stirring regularly to prevent catching and adding a little water if the dahl becomes too thick, until the lentils are tender.

  • Step 5

    Stir through the spinach leaves and chopped coriander, then serve with naan bread and mango chutney.

Tips & variations

  • Mustard seeds are available from Indian food shops and selected delis.
