One of the increasingly regular meals chez Magnon, is Dahl Saag; a very simple dish of lentils (dahl) and spinach (saag). And the good thing is, that the ingredients are in everyone's cupboard.
Once the lentils have been cooked and drained, I add roughly chopped spinach (actually I use chard), a small tub of yoghurt, about 2 tsps of garam masala and 1 of curry powder, the juice of half a lemon, and maybe half a chicken stock cube. This is then reheated until the spinach is cooked. The finished dish should be the consistency of fluid porridge.
Serve with basmati rice, and your favourite Indian pickles. A fabulous tasty meal, very few calories, and as cheap as chips..... What more could you want; I love it.
