Beetroot, Carrot and Coconut Dal

Introduction

This is a brilliant ‘hidden veg’ dal – as an adult, I shouldn’t have to hide vegetables from myself, but I get a kick out of adding extra veg to recipes to help get up to five a day (or ten a day, if that’s your thing). It’s also helpful if you’re cooking for children. As with all Indian dishes, I like to use the time it takes for the onions to cook to cut up the other vegetables, just turning round occasionally to stir the pan, as it cuts down drastically on prep time. Coconut milk and lime juice add a richness to this easy, everyday dish.
