Rainy meatless Monday. This hearty warming Coconut Green Lentil Daal dish will come as a big reward for surviving the day. One of the biggest reasons why we love daal, iss the fact of one pot meals. I am completely obsessed with one pot recipes; they make my life so much easier. The result is always a meal bursting from taste. This delightful plant-based course is high in protein, superbly spiced and profoundly tasty.
Coconut milk is the key for the creaminess and all those spices are perfect addition for a special twist to this hearty meal.
This creamy daal fits perfectly with our Naan bread.
