Serves 4


  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 3 cups water or vegetable stock
  • ½ cup EasiYo Natural Yogurt
  • 1-2 tsp black sesame seeds (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh coriander, chopped (optional)


  1. Heat oil in a large pot on a medium heat. Cook onion, garlic and ginger until soft.
  2. Add spices and salt and cook for a further 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  3. Rinse lentils under cold water, drain and add to pan. Stir lentils to coat with spiced onion mixture. Add tomatoes and water/stock and mix well.
  4. Leave uncovered and cook over a low heat for about 20 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked through.
  5. Remove from the heat and add a few spoonful’s of the dahl to a bowl. Whisk in yogurt and then combine mixture to the remaining dahl until fully combined; this will ensure the yogurt does not separate.
