My Go To Dhal Recipe


Kudos to Jasmine Hemsley for the inspiration for this recipe, it’s so simple and so warming.


1 tbsp coconut oil

1 onion diced

2 garlic cloves mashed

3cm ginger

1 tbsp cumin

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tbsp turmeric

1 tsp chilli flakes

1 tbsp whole grain mustard

1 diced carrot (I chop it into 1cm cubes)

250g red split lentils

500ml water

400ml tin of coconut milk

10-15 cherry tomatoes

1 lime



s + p


Heat coconut oil on medium heat and add onions, soften. Add garlic, chopped ginger all spices and mustard - mix and fry for a minute or two.

Mix in lentils, carrot, add water and coconut milk. Bring to boil and then keep it on a low heat with a lid for 20 minutes until lentils + carrots are soft.

add chopped tomatoes and heat through for 5 minutes then add lime juice.

garnish with chopped coriander and cashews. Salt and pepper if you need. Yum!

this recipe is marginally different to Jasmines but I have now made it so many times that THIS is exactly how I would make it and think it’s the most simple yummy thing.

Please tell/tag me @littlehealthbunny if you decide to make it! Enjoy!
