Indian Dal

Extended Shelf Life for: Jalapenos These jalapenos had already received the life extension through our truly magnificent dehydrator, therefore, the peppers were OLD! They were however, the perfect addition to our dal. Dal is an Indian dish that is delicious in so many ways as well as affordable, considering the main ingredient is lentils. We enjoyed this dish with Indian Roasted Salmon and a Cilantro Yogurt sauce, absolutely wonderful, especially when enjoyed in the company of sisters and a dear friend.

2 Tbsp. Canola Oil
3 tsp. Whole Cumin Seeds
2 tsp. Dried Jalapenos or Red Pepper Flakes
1 med. Onion
3 cloves Garlic, minced
Shake of salt
2 cups Lentils
3 cups Tea or Vegtable Broth
2 cups Water
1 tsp. ground Turmeric
Heat oil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in jalapenos and cumin, saute for 1 minute. Add garlic, onion and salt and saute for 1 more minute. Next, add lentils, liquid and turmeric. Cover saucepan, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 25 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and lentils are soft.
