Lentil curry, known as ‘dal’ in south asian cuisine, is a regular meal for many families. It is so rich and flavorful. There are several different lentils you can make curries with but I have used a yellow variety known as ‘moong.’
Soak the lentils in water for at least 30 minutes and rinse well before cooking. It’s fine if you leave it for longer than 30 minutes. Soaking the lentils prior to eating them helps make them easier to digest.
Lentil curry is best paired with brown or white basmati rice or naan. If you are keto you can pair it with cauliflower rice or you can even just eat lentil curry in a bowl on its own. It’s just as delicious and satisfying.
