  • 200g chana dahl, washed

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ghee

  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds

  • 1 teaspoon brown mustard seeds

  • 12 fresh curry leaves

  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped

  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 2 teaspoons finely grated fresh ginger

    Place the dahl in a saucepan and cover with warm water. Bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook, skimming the foam off the surface and discarding, for 12 minutes until just tender. Drain, reserving 1 1/2 cups of the cooking liquid.

Stir in curry leaves for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add the onion. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until soft. Add garlic, ginger and chilli. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add the cauliflower and remaining ghee. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until well combined. Stir in turmeric for 1 minute or until aromatic.

  • Step 3

    Add dahl and reserved water to pan. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 16 minutes or until cauliflower is tender. Season. Stir in lemon juice and coriander. Serve with chutney and yoghurt, if using.
