Number of Servings: 3


    Yellow Split Lentils, 1 cup
    Onions, raw, .5 cup, chopped
    Red Ripe Tomatoes, .5 cup, chopped or sliced
    Salt, to taste
    Turmeric, ground, .5 tbsp
    Chili powder, .5 tsp
    *Extra Light Olive Oil, 1.5 tbsp
    Garlic, 1 clove
    *Cumin seed, 1 tsp


Rinse the lentils well and soak for half hour.
Chop up the tomatoes and onions.

Add 1 litre of mineral water (they will cook quicker) to a pot; throw in the chopped onions and tomatoes along with the lentils.

Add salt to taste, red chilli powder and turmeric powder.

Bring it to a boil and then let it simmer till the lentils are done, usually takes no longer than 30 minutes. Take of the heat and put aside

In a small fry pan add the olive oil, cut the garlic cloves into thin slices and the cumin seed; when both are slight brown, add this to the Lentils already cooked, remember stand back for this one.

The Daal is ready to be served. This can be a main course on its own with a pita bread or a cup of rice. Or serve with grilled fish as a side dish.

I prefer it the best on rice.
