Ana's Dahl

Ana's Dahl

3 cups red dahl or lentils
1 cup sliced or chopped onion
1 - 2 tsp. fresh ginger
1 Tbsp. fresh garlic
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. turmeric
1/4 - 1/3 cup oil

Mix this all together and then add five cups water.
Cook until the dahl is
tender. Serve over rice.
I enjoy recipe sharing and attaching personal memories or people with them. This recipe was shared with me by a friend who recently visited Bangladesh. She received it from Ana, a woman who lives in a village there. I always wonder about Ana when I make this recipe. It's simple, but very tasty.


  1. My husband loves dahl as he lived in India and Pakistan in the late 70's. He doesn't like the curries I make, but maybe he would eat this. Will have to make some very soon, because even if he doesn't, I know I will enjoy it! Simple and healthy! My kinda recipe. Best wishes, Tammy

  2. Not a big fan of Dahl, but it does look good. How special to receive it through a friend from Ana in Bangladesh.
