Red Lentil Dhal with Coconut and Sweet Potato

Dhal is one of my favourite foods ever and it is so easy to make from scratch. It is ready in 30 minutes, making it a great weeknight dinner option. Dhal is also super cheap and nutrient dense, making it the perfect plant-based meal for students or anyone on a tight budget.

As a twist on the classic dish, the recipe I’m sharing today includes some coconut and sweet potato for a touch of sweetness and creaminess. And it’s still budget friendly too, costing just 81p per portion (or just 54p if you make your own chapatis!)
