    Fantastic! At last a recipe that all 5 members of my family enjoyed- including a very fussy teenager. Served it with a mix of brown and white coconut rice
    I added some broccoli but can totally see how all sorts of veg could be used.
    I added some vege stock paste and garam masala and it was super delicious. definitely making again.

    Soooooo good! I used a zucchini instead of red capsicum (coz that's what I had in the fridge) and I added a tbsp of veg stock paste - amazing! I also added some small cauliflower florets in for last 15mins just to add texture. Served with brown rice and the 5 year old smashed it.

    Submitted by Chevmag on 15. July 2017 - 17:46.

    This is SO good, my new favourite dahl. The only variance I did was add some garam masala as I ran out of ground cumin. Also added 3 cauliflower florets just to use up. Served to 4 generations as entree, they all loved it. Including the grandson who HATES coconut, husband HATES lentils (he thinks they only come in brown!!) granddaughter very suspicious of anything resembling vegetables. Winner, thank you for posting. Smile **I didn't say that I forgot to add my chopped coriander & yoghurt, found it after I served! Will add tomorrow to make go further, plus as it's gotten cold, it is a lot thicker.

  • I made this tonight for the

    Submitted by Kaaateee on 22. January 2015 - 23:10.

    I made this tonight for the four of us (2 adults, 2 kids). I used a fresh chilli (deseeded) instead of the flakes and found that it had enough spice to keep the adults interested, without being so hot that the kids wouldn't eat it. 

    I poured the second half of the coconut milk into the saucepan (along with the water) to cook my basmati rice instead of drizzling it on top of the dahl. We ended up with a beautiful tasting dahl dish that we were all very happy with, fluffy, fragrant coconut basmati rice, and some microwaved pappadums. Clean plates all round - what more can I ask for?

    I would highly recommend this recipe, and I estimate that it would serve 6 adults quite easily.

    Very tasty and now saved to my favourites. I've been looking for a good Dahl receipe for the thermie for a while now. I used one fresh tomato instead of tinned as I don't like it too tangy. I also left out the veggies as I was serving with other curries. Thank you for a great recipe.  Will be making again.

    Submitted by Kristine on 14. March 2014 - 23:34.

    Sorry my use of the descriptor 'tin' has upset you - it was my comment about 'I think' I used a 400ml tin when i wrote the recipe because that is the truth. In fact I have used 400ml tins and 260ml tins and equally the dahl comes out lovely so I guess it really doesnt matter, and probabaly why thre recipe has plenty of likers despite the lack of tin size indicated. tomatoes will be a 400ml tin. I will adjust the recipe.

  • Tin sizes: I've just counted

    Submitted by Yarrenbool on 14. March 2014 - 02:24.

    Tin sizes:

    I've just counted the comments on this Dahl recipe.

    There are about twenty (20) comments saying they had made it, almost all saying how great it is, but not one single one of those comments have said what size cans they used!

    There is one (1) comment suggesting what size can of coconut to try, but only an "I think", with no indication that the person had tried to make the Dahl.

    Gertrude Stein, in 1913, said in a poem: "A rose is a rose is a rose" but believe me, she could NOT have written: "A tin is a tin is a tin"

  • For months I keep coming back

    Submitted by Yarrenbool on 14. March 2014 - 02:09.

    For months I keep coming back to this recipe but never end up trying it as I'm always stumped by the two references to "1 tin" with no indication at all just what size tins, tomatoes and coconut milk, the recipe calls for.

    I keep hoping to find a definitive answer here in the comments from someone who has tried making it.

    People who post recipes (and thank you very much to all who do so) should keep in mind that they are read by people all around the world where cans, packets, etc, come in many many different sizes. 

    So, if anyone who has actually successfully made dahl from this recipe could post information on what size cans of tomatoes and coconut they used it would be really appreciated, especially by me.

    It would be even better if the person who posted it originally could edit the list of ingredients to be more precise.

    Thanks very much!  This was really lovely.  I made it with Carnation Coconut instead of regular coconut milk and it was a bit sweet, but still really nice.  The sweetness suited the kids, because it took the heat out of it a bit. I'd put a whole chilli with seeds in because I didn't think the kids would want any.  Husband loved it too and he's not usually very enthusiastic about veggo dinners.  Winner.
