A flavorful sidedish with any curry or an excellent addition to an array of Indian dishes. Served with rice and yogurt, Dhall can be a meal in itself.
In a large pot, cook the lentils, mung beans or peas in stock or water along with the salt and tumeric. Drain, but reserve the liquid.
Saute the onions, garlic, and the rest of the spices in the oil until the onions are golden brown, stirring continuously.
Mix the drained lentils or peas with the sauted spices and reheat gently. When hot, stir in the coconut milk. If the Dhall is too dry or thick, add some of the reserved liquid.
For a lighter, less sweet version of this dish, substitute 1 cup chopped tomatoes for the coconut milk.
