    I love Dahl & am yet to make my own, will be trying this out this winter, looking forward to some nice cold weather food now that summer is dying down

    We’re still waiting – and hoping – for summer at this end Andrea! Sounds like you had a hot one this year in Melbourne. I’m going to find it difficut to get my head around salad-type foods after two winters in a row.

    Just made your dahl and it’s fantastic. Never really thought too much of dahl but that’s defo a recipe we’ll make over Winter again. Hope your well and say a big HI to the boy.

    It’s definitely a step up in flavour from lots of other dahls – I think it’s the coconut milk that makes all the difference – and you can make the onion garnish as spicy as you like.
    The Boy is keeping well, getting all settled back in Ireland again and looking forward to the Aussie’s visit in May.
