Dhal gobi – Lentil and cauliflower curry

This curry was a quick meal that I threw together last weekend with some scrap vegetables from the fridge. It turned out super yummy, like a mix of classic indian dishes Aloo gobi (potato and cauliflower curry) and Dhal (which normally is just a lentil curry). It only took about 15 min to make it, and nothing complicated at all, just great flavour!

This is what I used:

  • ½ a cauliflower
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ~100ml red lentils
  • 1 ½ glass of water
  • ½ a yellow pepper
  • 1 small tomato
  • a small spoon of sambal oelek
  • vegetable stock
  • turmeric (quite a lot of it)
  • ground coriander
  • cumin (spiskummin)
  • fresh cilantro

Chop and fry the vegetables in some oil. Then add the the spices (except the fresh cilantro). Continue by adding the lentils, the vegetable stock and the water. Make sure that there is enough water for the lentils to boil until they are soft and mushy. Let simmer on low heat until the curry thickens. Finish with some sambal oelek and cilantro.

Serve with warm garlic naan (that you can buy pre made in the store and just throw in the oven).
