INSTRUCTIONS

1
Make the makrut lime sizzle

Add just half the cumin seeds, just half the garlic, and 3 tbsp olive oil to a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook until garlic is lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add makrut lime leaves and curry powder, and stir to combine. Transfer the makrut lime sizzle to a small bowl. (4-serving meal: use 6 tbsp olive oil) TIP: You will use this saucepan again in the next step; you don’t need to wash it.

2
Cook the beluga lentils

Add remaining cumin seeds, remaining garlic, and 1 tbsp olive oil to the medium saucepan, and place over low heat. Cook until garlic is lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Add beluga lentils, tomato powder, jalapeño, 1 tsp salt, and 2 cups of water to the saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until lentils are tender, 24 to 28 minutes. Add lemon juice, and stir the dal. (4-serving meal: use 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tsp salt, 3¼ cups water) TIP: To “sort” the lentils (as noted in the ingredient list) means to look for and discard any naturally occurring debris or stones.

3
Toast the flatbread

Drizzle 1 tsp makrut lime sizzle on each side of the flatbreads. Toast in a medium nonstick skillet until golden brown on both sides. Sprinkle toasted flatbreads with salt and cut each piece into sixths.

4
Make tamarind kale

Return the medium nonstick skillet to the stove over medium heat. Add tamarind chutney and kale and cook until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

5
Serve

Divide the dal between bowls and top with tamarind kale and yogurt. Drizzle with remaining makrut lime sizzle and lemon zest. Serve with toasted flatbread. Dig in!
