OUR PERFECT Classic Lentil Tarka Daal

For added heat and extra flavour, add 2 green chillies, pricked with the tip of a knife, into the oil after frying the whole spices and fry for 30 seconds before adding in the lentils.

Add the tarka sauce and lentils and bring to a simmer.

Finish with chopped fresh coriander.

For a real Indian flavour, fry the spices in a little ghee instead of oil, it enhances the buttery flavour of these lentils.

For a one-pot meal, add in 2 handfuls of baby spinach.
