Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
In a large bowl rinse the Red Lentils (1 1/3 cups) until the water runs clear.
step 2
Then, cover the lentil with filtered water, add the Kombu (4 pieces) and let the lentils soak for 2-3 hours (or even overnight). The Kombu seaweed helps to soften beans, making them more digestible and less gassy.
step 3
Drain the beans from the soaking water, transfer them to a large pot, cover with water, and add Salt (1 Tbsp). Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 30 minutes.
step 4
Drain the beans again from the cooking water and set them aside.
step 5
In a large pot heat up Coconut Oil (2 Tbsp), once melted add the Curry Powder (1 1/2 Tbsp), Fennel Seeds (1/2 Tbsp), Ground Black Pepper (to taste), and Ground Ginger (1/4 tsp). Toast the spices for a few minutes.
step 6
Add the Onion (1), Carrot (1), and Celery (2). Cook on low for 5 minutes.
step 7
Add the lentils back to the pot, and add Water (1 1/2 cups) and the Bay Leaves (4). Bring to a simmer and let cook for 20 minutes. The lentils will start to break making the soup quite creamy.
step 8
Stir in the Full-Fat Coconut Milk (1/2 can), and cook for 5 more minutes. Adjust with salt if needed.
step 9
Your Indian Dahl is ready! Serve it with some steamed rice if you fancy.
