Curried Apple and Lentil Dal

I got this recipe from here

Very helpful blog when it comes to saving me money. Apparently, this recipe works out to be about 60c per serve.

1 Small onion diced fine (I used half a large one)
4 cloves garlic (TBS-ish of minced garlic)
tsp minced ginger (I guesstimated with dried ginger)
2 apples diced (I used granny smiths - skin on)
2 1/2 tsp garamassala
1 1/2 cup red lentils
2 cups vegetable broth (I used stock)

Recipe says to:
In large pot, heat onions, garlic and ginger until fragrant. Add apples and garamassala. Stir.
Add lentils, broth and stir. Drop to med low heat and simmer uncovered until lentils and apples are tender

What I did: chucked it all in the slow cooker for 4 hours on high... Will let you know how it turns out.

The website that it's from says that it needs no accompaniment. I think I'm going to do it with rice though.


  1. Can't say I have tried anyhthing like that Apple dish, sounds fanstatic though-I'm DEFINATLY going to make it!!
    BTW-Your chickpea curry recipe? AMAZING!!!!!

  2. Glad you like the chickpea curry =]
    Pat didn't really like the apple curry, I think it was too bland for him... Probably some pork would go really well in it, either mince or brazed =]
