Yield: Serves 4
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30-35 mins

Ingredients:

For Dhal:

  • 1 cup dry red lentils
  • 2 red onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup carrot, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons red chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1-2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups water
  • Cilantro or mint leaves for garnish

For chapatis:

  • 1½ cups durum wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut or sesame oil
  • ¾-1 cup warm water

Direction:

Tip: For homemade garam masala, grind equal amounts of coriander seeds, green cardamom (with skin), garlic cloves, and black pepper. Add a pinch of cumin powder or cinnamon/mace for extra taste.

  1. Rinse lentils well. Boil water in a saucepan, add in the lentils, cover with a lid, and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, prepare the dough. Add the flour and salt to a pan. Make a well in the center and add the oil and water. Slowly mix the flour with the water and oil to create a soft dough. If the dough is sticky, add a little flour to it. Knead the dough for 7-10 minutes, cover it with a damp piece of cloth, and set aside.
  3. Heat the coconut oil in another pan over medium heat. Sauté the finely chopped onions for 3-4 minutes, until they turn translucent. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  4. Add the finely chopped sweet potatoes and carrots. Sprinkle the water from the lentil pot on the vegetables, sauté for 7-10 minutes, and stir frequently.
  5. Add the spices, salt, and cooked lentils. Mash the dhal (lentils) with a potato masher. Simmer for 5 minutes until the gravy thickens a bit.
  6. Divide the dough into 12-15 portions. Dust a rolling surface with wheat flour, take a portion of dough and roll it out into a thin circle (like a tortilla).
  7. Warm up a non-stick frying pan or a cast-iron girdle over medium heat. Place the uncooked chapatti(dough) on it and reduce the heat. Lightly press on the chapati with your hand, spreading it around the pan. Flip it over when the dough circle starts to puff up. Repeat this process 2-3 times until you have a chapati with nice brown spots. Each chapati takes 1-2 minutes to cook.

Variation:

• Use any other spice mix of your choice.
• Add other tubers or squash.
• Serve the dhal with tortillas, pita bread, rice, or other cooked grains.
• Use buckwheat, teff, sorghum, barley or millet flour to make chapattis. Add or reduce water depending on the flour used.
