Skinnymixers Red Lentil Dahl Thermomix

With everything happening in the World I thought it was a good time to blog my favourite super budget friendly, pantry staple Thermomix recipe – Red Lentil Dahl.

Dahl is a hearty, super healthy vegetarian dish that is packed full of protein but easy on the budget. 

You can serve this Red Lentil Dahl as a main with steamed rice or Garlic, Cheese & Spinach Naan.

It also makes a delicious side dish to serve with your favourite Butter Chicken or Curry.

There is no need to soak the split red lentils overnight & you can adjust the chilli to taste.

A massive thank you to Tennielle Barron for the amazing photo of the Dahl.

Indian curry feast with Thermomix Naan
Lailah’s Garlic, Cheese & Spinach Naan really is the best Thermomix Naan recipe and goes perfectly with curries from ‘A Little Taste of India’
