Ingredients

  • 1 pack of The Spice Tailor Classic Tarka Daal (lentils included) 
  • 1 tsp. ghee or butter or vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • A little ginger julienne
  • 2-3 handfuls chopped cleaned spinach or baby spinach
  • ½ tsp. garam masala
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice (optional and to taste)
  • Fresh cilantro to finish

Method

  1. Heat the ghee in a medium non-stick saucepan. Add the spices from the spice packet along with the chilli if you would like some heat. Cook gently for 10-20 seconds, or until the seeds are aromatic. Add in the ginger and garlic and cook for another 30-40 seconds.
  2. Add in the spinach and a little seasoning and cook down until wilted. You can add a small splash of water to help. Stir in the tarka (small pouch) from the pack, give the pan a stir, add the lentils and bring to a simmer.
  3. Stir in the garam masala and lemon juice if you would like. Add some boiling water if the lentils look thick and serve garnished with the cilantro.
