I went to see my Reiki Master today & left feeling powered up, supercharged, loved & connected. She reminded me what a powerful healing medium reiki is. Combined with healing intentions, I am vibing on these powerhouse Indian spices to help heal my beau :)
My every day dahl
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 red onion sliced
1 tbsp cumin seeds
3 red dried chillis
1 tbsp ground turmeric
4 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
1 cup of yellow split peas
Salt to taste
Heat the coconut oil in a pan until its really hot. Have everything (cumin, garlic, onions & chilli) ready to go into the pan, because you are going to want to move fast because the spices will burn easily if you don't. So, throw the cumin and dried red chilli into the oil. When the cumin starts to pop, add the onions and garlic. Stir, the onions are going to cool the pan down a lot, so let them do their thing for about 4 or 5 minutes. then add the yellow split peas & 1 litre of water, the turmeric and about a tbsp of salt. Bring to the boil then turn it down & let it cook for about 20 minutes. When its all thick and gooey, taste it carefully! Add more seasoning if you need to & serve it up with some Basmati Rice.
I sprinkled some coconut flakes, black & white sesame seeds and another dried chilli on top. I also put a little ramekin of coconut yoghurt with a dollop of mango chutney I had in the fridge. All of that is optional if you have it. The dahl is amazing by itself or poured over some steamed veggies or a wedge of roasted pumpkin ORRRR roll it up in some flat bread with some leaves, tomato, coconut yoghurt .... soooooo good !!
