In a pan add 100gms of yellow split peas (chana dahl) and 50gms of red
lentils with water and 2 garlic cloves chopped, a teaspoon of turmeric
and grated ginger, and some coriander fresh or dried, let that cook for
40 mins to an hour
meanwhile make the tarka bit
fry some cumin
seeds and 4 red chillis chopped, a small onion and a teaspoon of garam
masala and 2 chopped toms, let this fry for 10 mins so you have a nice
oil coming from it…

well, cook for 10 mins more, then add half a can of coconut milk, and
juice n zest of a lime,,
24p for split peas and lentils

Author: Miki's Meals On A Budget

My name is Miki, and I live healthily on a budget, I am not a vegetarian but do have many meat free days, I have a lot of love for beans, pulses, lentils and veg, so you will see many meals posted based around these ingredients. I will also post meat and fish recipes. I spend no more than £30 per week for 2 full time adults, plus my 2 elderly inlaws evening meals (I do meals on wheels for them) and my granddaughter a couple of days a week...I love food especially savory food and curries, but I do have to watch my weight so many of my recipes will be low in fat, with the odd pie thrown in lol.
