  • Lentil dahl
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 tbs. Olive oil
  • 1 Clove Garlic, chopped
  • 2 Tomatoes, finely diced

  • 200 g Lentils, red, uncooked
  • 200 ml Water
  • 50 ml Coconut milk
  • 20 g Coriander, fresh, coarsely chopped

  1. Cauliflower steaks: Preheat the oven to 140°C using top/bottom heat. Marinate the two pieces of cauliflower in olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, wrap in aluminium foil and braise in the oven until everything else has been prepared.
  2. Wholegrain basmati rice & lentil dahl: Cook the rice together with the cardamom pod and cinnamon in accordance with the instructions on the pack. Season with salt and pepper and put to one side.
  3. Sauté the onions in a saucepan with olive oil over a moderate heat until they become translucent. Add the garlic and briefly sauté. Add the tomatoes, ginger, coriander, turmeric, garam masala, curry powder and chilli powder. Allow to sweat for 1-2 min. while stirring. Rinse the lentils in cold water and add, together with the water and coconut milk. Allow to simmer for approx. 15 min. until the lentils are soft and only then season with salt and pepper.
  4. To serve: Take the cauliflower out of the oven and cut into slices, approx. 3 cm thick. Fry them briefly over a very high heat in a non-stick frying pan until they turn a nice colour. Plate up the rice, lentil dahl and cauliflower steaks. Sprinkle the fresh coriander over the top and serve with a piece of lime.
