the indian dinner the other night was soooooo good and the best bit ws the dhal - which was only supposed to be the side dish LOL

1-2 tspns ghee, melted
1 onion, finely chopped
1-3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into small dice (about 3/4cm)
1 potato, cut into small dice
black mustard seeds, maybe 1 tab
fenugreek seeds, maybe 1 1/2 tspns
cumin seeds, maybe 1 tspn
(you can also add turmeric or saffron for colour if you like)

fry all of the above on a medium heat until the onion and garlic are translucent
add water to cover by a few inches. put in lentils, maybe 2 cups (i really have no idea how many i put in lol)
add 2 zucchini in small dice
chicken stock powder, maybe 1.5 tabs

simmer until lentils become thick and soupy. add more water to have a soup like consistency.

this was a bit different to my usual dhal and a very happy mistake as it was divine, much better than usual! LOL
i have a feeling i might have left something out above so might come back to this recipe later...

oh and i also can't dcide how to spell it LOL
