Cooking Stages

    • Wash the dal thoroughly and place in a pan of cold water. Bring to the boil and cook until completely soft (length of time depends on the type of dal). When cooked, leave in the hot water and season well with salt for 20 minutes before draining.

    • Place the potatoes in a pan of salted water and bring to the boill; at which point, add the squash.Cook until both are tender, then drain. Meanwhile, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and blanch the carrots and okra together for about five minutes, until just tender, then drain.

    • Heat a good splash of oil in a large, flat pan over a medium heat. When it’s hot, add the mustard seeds, then cumin, chilli and onions. Cook until the onions turn slightly brown, then add the curry leaves and fry for a moment until they turn translucent.

    • Add the cooked veg, tomatoes, dal, tamarind water, asafoetida and RawSpiceBar’s Sambhar Masala. Season well and add a splash of water so you have a thick curry. Cook for another five minutes so that everything can mingle, then serve with coriander leaves and some jasmine rice.
