Red Lentil Dahl Premium PD Recipe


Dahl is as common in an Indian home as red sauce is in an Italian kitchen. This pantry staple is simmered and layered with bold protective spices and chilis as an everyday Indian comfort food. This aromatic, colorful, high-fiber, protein-rich protective sauce is served over rice with cooling tangy garnishes. My recipe, including oil-free cooking techniques, elevates this classic Indian dish to next level gourmet with maximum flavor and protection. Learn to toast spices without the use of blood-thickening inflammatory oils or hormone-filled artery-clogging ghee. Every ingredient celebrates the traditional preparation of Indian dahl while simplifying the process and boosting freshness, flavor, and protection for humans, animals and our planet on a Protective Diet. Red lentils were chosen for their color, quick cooking time, global availability and digestibility. Red lentil dahl is one of the first foods introduced to a baby in India and enjoyed on a daily basis for healthy growth and development.

    Really good! I stirred the rice in to hide from Hubby. I will put over potatoes next time too. Love any good recipe with lentils!

    This Dahl is delicious Indian comfort food and comes together very easily. While cooking on the stovetop my husband came into the kitchen looking to see what ‘smelled so good!’ Although traditionally served over rice, I poured mine over baked potatoes and really enjoyed it. Another meal my family will happily enjoy often!
