Ah, we’re already at my vegan red lentil dhal. My favourite recipe. I feel like every vegan has dhal close to their heart, both literally and metaphorically. Yes, that is dhal on my jumper.
This is a recipe that I have been asked for many times. It’s taken me a while to put pen to paper and actually write it down but in the process there have been many tastings and many excuses to make it.

This recipe has become integral in both my life and in what I dedicate my freezer space to. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as making enough food for a large family and knowing you will get to do the yes I made my own lunch look over the work lunch table.
Make in bulk and life your best life. Well, maybe the best life of someone much older than you but whatever we’re here now.
My vegan lentil dhal is the sister recipe of my vegan curry powder because one really doesn’t work without the other. I’m gonna stress again, I know it may seem ridiculous to make your own curry powder but trust me – it is worth it.
You’ll see pandan is in this recipe again, like the curry powder. I didn’t really explain what this was in the last recipe but there’s not much more you need to know than that it’s really great you can get this in most Asian supermarkets. If you’re in Dublin, I recommend the Oriental Emporium by Jervis as not only are they super friendly and cheap but there’s also a 10% student discount.
Okay, the recipe. It’s dhal-icious…
