Cheap Eat Recipes - Red Lentil Dhal Curry

This rich and hearty red lentil (otherwise know as Masoor Dhal) curry dish, is one of my all-time favourite cheap eat recipes, that is quick and easy to make and suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

It's one of the most common recipes prepared in India on a daily basis and has many health benefits. It contains high levels of protein, fibre, folate, vitamin B1, minerals and can help lower cholesterol. It's also an excellent source of potassium and iron, rich in antioxidants.

The following recipe will make you enough portions to feed up to 8 people. I love to cook up a batch once in a while and have it for a money-saving lunch at work in the week. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook.

Don't be discouraged by the list of ingredients, they're all pretty cheap and if you're anything like me, you will already have half of them in your kitchen cupboard or on the spice rack anyway. Once cooked, serve with Naan Bread or rice. Yummy.
