A lot of people, myself included, like to stick to tradition when it comes to preparing certain dishes from particular cuisines. Indian is one of the tricky cuisines for me, as I love Indian food and don’t want to compromise on flavor. When I first started converting the Indian recipes I love to paleo, I wondered how I could replace the split peas or lentils in much-loved dal. Still pondering this, I had the good fortune to be in Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory with the Hope For Health team, who are working to create a healthier community. While there, one of the volunteer cooks served up the most amazing dal. I immediately asked to borrow the recipe–and here it is. Serve this alongside any Indian or Sri Lankan dish.
