Creamy Lentil and Veggie Curry


This dish is a cross between dahl and curry. Shall I call it a Calh?
Somehow I don’t think it will catch on, for now, I will just call it a curry.
Curry is such a versatile meal, you can add any veggies, grains or spices your taste buds love. I usually make a big batch of this curry and keep it in the fridge for lunches throughout the week or freeze it when I am busy and need something tasty and fast.

This curry can be tailored to suit individual tastes or to increase your daily veggies intake.
