Red Lentils & Sweet Potatoes Dahl

I hope you love Indian food as much as I do. I always feel very excited when I smell the spice and herbs tossing in the pan. This dahl is ideal to serve with curry and rice with roti as I like to substitute some plant protein for animal protein these days. Sweet potato is low GI and turmeric is good for preventing cancer so this is a meal for anyone looking for good health.

It's long weekend of Queen's Birthday in Australia. Have a lovely weekend!

Red Lentils & Sweet Potatoes Dahl

3 cups water
1 small sweet potatoes, peeled & cubed
1 tomato, diced
1/4 small onion
1/3 cup red lentils
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
salt to taste


  1. Rinse and drain the lentils. 
  2. Add a little oil and add the onion and turmeric. Then add water and the remaining ingredients. Simmer until the lentil and sweet potatoes are cooked.
  3. When the water evaporate and the dahl starts to thicken, seasoned with salt.  Serve with roti or rice.
