Sri Lankan Dhal Curry

The most staple Sri Lankan curry of all.

Extremely delicious and healthy and best of all it's vegan, fluent free and high in protein and fibre.

This traditional creamy dhal curry takes only 20- 30mins. It's made from first boiling red lentils in water then adding coconut milk, fried garlic and ginger along with authentic spices such as brown mustard seeds, fenugreek and curry powder mix.

You can add chilli flakes or green chilli for more spice.

Dhal curry is such a versatile dish you can have it morning, evening and night. It goes perfect with either rice, roti, naan bread, chapati or you could simply have it on its own!
