Creamy Coconut Dhal with Butternut Squash

Creamy Coconut Dhal with Butternut Squash

Dhal was the first Indian food that I introduced to Lil’ L at around the age of two.  I added some creamed coconut to give it a lovely creamy texture and pieces of butternut squash to add a touch of sweetness and to boost its nutrient content. Lil’ L absolutely loved the dish and it’s still one of his favourites today. It’s such an easy meal to make and super cheap, costing only a few pence per portion. It’s delicious served with chapattis or brown rice, or both for a mini feast!

    1. This Dhal is one of our favourite dishes ever! We made it again over the Christmas holidays and added some more veggies (red peppers & mushrooms) to bulk it up and add more goodness. It was really yummy & it’s so simple to make! I keep a stash of chapattis in the freezer so I don’t have to mess around making them each time we have Indian meals.
      I hope you enjoy it as much as we do 🙂

  1. This looks so yummy! I love lentils! I’m not even vegetarian but lentils over meat ANY day of the week!! I have to try this…but might try and use up the 7 packs of reduced mushrooms I bought first…! 😉
