Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Punjabi-Style Black Dal With Cumin Rice

Peel and finely dice the red onion[s]

Heat a wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add half of the cumin seeds and cook for 1-2 min or until starting to become fragrant

Add the chopped red onion and ground turmeric and cook for 5-6 min or until starting to soften

2 Punjabi-Style Black Dal With Cumin Rice

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Slice some rings from the red chilli[es] (reserve these for garnish), and chop the rest finely

Chop the coriander, including the stalks, roughly

3 Punjabi-Style Black Dal With Cumin Rice

Add the basmati rice, a pinch of salt, the remaining cumin seeds and 250ml [500ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving – this is your cumin rice

4 Punjabi-Style Black Dal With Cumin Rice

Boil a kettle

Once the onions have softened, add the chopped garlic, ginger and chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and cook for 3-4 min further or until fragrant

Meanwhile, drain and rinse the kidney beans

Dissolve 1/2 [1] vegetable stock cube in 400ml [800ml] boiled water

5 Punjabi-Style Black Dal With Cumin Rice

Add the tomato paste to the pan and cook for 1-2 min

Add the kidney beans and the black beluga lentils and cook for 2-3 min or until starting to soften, then mash them roughly

Tip: Add a splash of water if it is looking a little dry – this will help to thicken the sauce!

6 Punjabi-Style Black Dal With Cumin Rice

Add the vegetable stock and garam masala to the pan and bring to the boil

Cook for 6-8 min further or until the kidney beans are cooked and the sauce has thickened

Season generously with salt

7 Punjabi-Style Black Dal With Cumin Rice

Once thickened, add the clotted cream and cook for 1 min further, or until melted – this is your Punjabi-style black dal makhani
