Black Dal

A new favourite. You can't beat the flavours in this dal, with a creamy coconut and oat base and soothing spices to warm the soul as the days get cooler.


Serves 2-4


  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 2 chopped white onions
  • 200g coconut milk
  • 140ml oat milk
  • 200ml water
  • 200g cooked beluga lentils
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 knob of ginger, peeled and crushed
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 handful coriander, chopped


  1. Add a little oil into a saucepan and fry off the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli for 3-5 minutes. Add in the spices and fry off for another couple of minutes, adding a splash of water if they start to stick to the pan.
  2. Add in the chopped tomatoes, coconut milk and water. Stir and leave to simmer on a low-medium heat for 15-20 minutes until reduced.
  3. Add in the lentils, oat milk and frozen peas and leave to simmer for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Season your dal with salt and then serve with a base of spinach and a garnish of spring onions and coriander. It is lovely either with some rice and quinoa, a dollop of coconut yoghurt or just by itself for a warming lunch or dinner!
