Vegan Coconut Curry Lentil Dhal
I wanted to make a coconut curry lentil dhal from the time I went vegan because I kept seeing those delicious-looking pictures that would make my mouth water every time. I don’t know why I have waited this long, it is honestly so good and easy to make!
The coconut milk makes it super creamy and comforting. If you are like me and you love the taste of curry and coconut together, I highly recommend that you try this recipe out.
Vegan Dhal with Red Lentils
In India, “dhal” refers to legumes like lentils. It is traditionally prepared with Indian lentils called chana dal, that look like split peas.
If you can’t find those where you live, you can easily substitute them with red lentils for example. But you have to know that the texture won’t be exactly the same – unlike chana dal that stay a bit crunchy after cooking, red lentils turn into a thick puree.
How to Store Vegan Lentil Dhal
This dish keeps well in the fridge and can be enjoyed either hot or cold.
If you have leftover dhal, you can place it in a lunch box and take it with you to work. You may need to add a small amount of water to thin it out a little because it tends to thicken when cooling down.
I hope you will LOVE this vegan lentil dhal! It’s:
- Very filling
- Rich in protein
