January 27, 2017

Ingredients Needed

2 Tbsp of Veg oil.

½ Tsp of Chief Brand Cumin Seeds (Geera)

1 Tbsp of Minced Garlic

1 Tbsp of Minced Onions

1 Tbsp of Minced Pimento Peppers

½ Tsp of Minced Ginger

½ Tbsp of Chief Brand Curry Powder

½ Tbsp of Chief Brand Geera Powder

½ Tbsp of Chief Brand Amchar Massala

1 Tsp of Chief Brand Turmeric (Saffron)

1 Cup of Massouri dhal (fine split pea lentils)

1 Head of Cauliflower (Florets Only)

5 Cups of Vegetable Stock

1 Tbsp of Minced Fresh Chadon Beni

½ Tsp of Chief Brand Chili Powder

Chief Brand Salt and Black Pepper to Taste


  • In a medium sauce pan over high heat, add the oil followed by the garlic, onions, pimentos and ginger and sauté for 30 seconds.
  • Add the spices and cook over high heat for about one minute until curry spices are parched. Now add the massouri dhal, cauliflower florets and vegetable stock. Stir, cover and bring to a boil and then simmer on medium heat for about 20 minutes.
  • Puree with stick blender until slightly smooth and season with salt and black pepper to the end. Add the fresh Chadon beni and the chili powder.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary. Dhal should be slightly thick whilst still seeing the soften grains of the lentils inside with small fragments of cauliflower. Serve over basmati rice or with roti.
