Recipe here. Of course I bought the almonds and coriander to garnish. I’m a sucker for unnecesary food purchases.
I succummbed to my perennial failing – timing. The chicken was done well before the dhal and rice. BUT. It was, in the words of Mr B, “very good”. And coming from him, this is high praise. The recipe worked well, and the dhal was better than normal. For next time, start the rice and dhal at the same time the chicken goes in the pan.
Look at that. Steaming, bubbling turmeric lentils. I used Maldon sea salt to season, which always adds an edge.
And the finished dish:
It’s not a great picture because pretty food isn’t my speciality, especially when it comes to Indian food. The creme fraiche was almost lemony in its tang. I’ll certainly make this again.
