Red Lentil Dhal

  20 rater(s)

Because red lentils are much smaller and cook more easily than regular brown lentils, they are perfect for soups and stews. If you feel like getting fancy with your dhal, you can dice some cauliflower, carrots, and green beans and saute them in a separate pan before combining them adding them in the mix.
