My friend Angela introduced me to this colourful and healthy all in one daal from Rukmini Iyer’s ” The Green Roasting Tin”. It was so good i had to cook it myself a few days later, omitting the cashews and serving with sausages. But it is also very good on its own, served with naan or rice. I was a bit doubtful that the lentils would cook properly in the oven, but they were perfect.
I love Rukmini Iyer’s series of recipes that can be cooked in a roasting tin and know that these are books i will keep returning too.
