Tarka Dal, add this to you easy go to list. Aromatic and satisfyingly tasty, cook while you are out in the slow cooker. A great dish for the vegetarians and vegans and yes for those slimming world members fake-away all the way,low fat diets. So if you are wondering what on earth you can cook for you relation who is coming round for dinner this is a super way to impress and fill the up!!
Don’t worry if you haven’t got a slow cooker you can make this on the stove just add a little more fluid and simmer for approximately 40 mins stirring occasionally. There are many Slimming World recipes which can be cooked either way, but I would advice purchasing a slow cooker, they are inexpensive and can save you so much time. Take a look at our shop to find the perfect slow-cooker and don’t forget to top up your spice rack!
Wash your lentils in cold running water through a sieve works very well, then pop them into the slow-cooker add all the ingrediants for the Dal.
Leave them in the slow cooker on high for 4 hours.
About fifteen mins before your Dal is ready pop on your rice to boil.
When your Dal id ready prepare your Tarka and serve alongside your boiled rice. Enjoy
