Who doesn’t love Dahl? This recipe is a really simple version we have created to max-out flavour while keeping it simple enough to make after a long day.



  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 1-litre chicken or vegetable stock
  • 3 cloves minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon green cardoon pod
  • 1 bunch coriander root

  • 1 chilli minced
  • 2 cm cube ginger minced
  • 1 lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon grama masala powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 bunch coriander chopped

  • Add a good lug of oil to the frying pan and fry the red onion and garlic over a medium-low heat until softened and golden. Add the cumin and coriander powder, then stir and cook for another minute.

  • Add broccoli and kale to the pan and cook for 3 minutes until wilted and tender, then add lemon juice, rind and cook.

  • Add the spinach and peas, season with salt and black pepper, then stir and cook for a further 2 to 3 minutes, or until the spinach has wilted.
  • Crack the eggs into the pan and leave to cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then pop a lid on to steam the tops. Season the yolks with salt and pepper.
