Red Split Lentils (Masoor Dal)
Red split lentils are a wonderful legume that has made a small amount of headway into the world of mainstream home cooking - the main reason is that they taste great and cook really easily!
The tiny, reddish-orange legumes cook in no time at all, making them an ideal side dish for a large meal. You don’t need to fuss about a complex side dish, instead, an easy portion of lentils will be ready virtually when you are!
The basic flavor of these lentils is mild, earthy, and a little bit sweet - they’re very light and bright compared to other types of lentils and are very easy to eat in mountains.
During the cooking process, they very easily and quickly become soft and creamy, this makes them a wonderful addition to stocks and soups - they provide a gentle addition to the texture which can perfectly finish a dish.
The thing which differs between ordinary red lentils and split red lentils is that red split lentils have been processed, ever so slightly. The outer seed coating has been removed, and the lentils themselves have been split in half - this hugely reduces the cooking time, and makes things much simpler in your kitchen.
A great dish that we adore using red split lentils in is a sweet potato satay curry. The best way to make satay is to start small, and then build your way up. So, first things first, you could add in your cooked sweet potato or even pieces of chicken, along with your peanut butter and fresh chillies. When the dish is wonderfully aromatic, you can add in coconut milk, and allow the dish to gently simmer for as long as it might need.
The simmering process of a good satay is the perfect time to allow some red split lentils to gently simmer in your sauce - they will cook easily and will soak up some of the coconut milk that the dish is dominated by. In no time at all, you’ll be able to serve up a bowl of creamy, rich delight!
