Contains a whole spice pouch and cooked lentils
This deliciously moreish lentil curry is a true Bengali favourite. There, it is normally served thick and scooped up with chewy morsels of fried flatbreads for a delicious regional treat. Our Bengali Coconut Daal is slightly lighter and thinner and has the delicious addition of coconut slivers that create an extra layer of texture and sweetness. The spice mix adds extra depth of intrigue to this daal with a difference.
From pack to table in just 5 minutes, you can’t go wrong with this delicate daal with either rice or Indian flat breads. And, for the most authentic meal, have a look at our puri recipe, a delicious chewy fried flatbread that is traditionally eaten with these lentils. It’s a fantastic meal to keep on hand in your cupboard for busy days. Perfect for vegetarians or meat-free days.
