Recipe's preparation

  1. Place garlic and peeled ginger into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7. Set aside
    Place onion into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with the spatula.
    Add oil or ghee and sauté for 2 minutes at 100⁰C on speed 1.
    Add chopped garlic and ginger and sauté for 2 minutes at 100⁰C on speed 1.
    ( I guess you could add the onion, ginger and garlic all at once but I tried to follow the original recipe to the letter.)
    Add cumin, coriander, turmeric, salt and chilli and sauté for 1 minute at 100⁰C on speed 1.
    Add water / stock / tomatoes / coconut milk and lentils and cook for 5 minutes at 100⁰C on speed 1.
    Add chopped vegetables and cook for 20 minutes at 100⁰C on  Counter-clockwise operation + speed 1.
    Season with salt and serve with coriander leaves and fresh lemon or lime juice.

  • Made this for dinner tonight.

    Made this for dinner tonight. The boys (4 and 18 mths) like it and hubby enjoyed it too. I tried carrot and sweet potato as it was all we had left and did the water/tinned tomato option. I think next time I will add the extra cup of water as well as the tomatoes as it was very thick. It will be great to try this again as a base with different veggies!

    :bigsmile:Big thumbs up from me - it is exactly like my 'non-thermie" recipe for dahl. I added chickpeas at the final step instead of other vegies - it is super fabulous

    Very nice, quick and super easy. My 4 yr old and 18 month old loved it! I also used tomato and water combo. I used coconut oil instead of vegetable/ ghee and it gave it a great hint of flavor. :)
