Thermomix Dhal-Licious Recipe

Thermomix Dhal-Licious Recipe

I am a huge fan of anything quick, delicious and nutritious, which is why this recipe is a winter favorite of mine! Yes its needs a bit of cooking time (only 35 minutes!) but your contact time with your TM is very minimal so the cooking for you is still a very quick exercise! Delicious with rice, coconut yogurt and roti bread but also stands on its own as a satisfying nurturing stew. I think you’ll be surprised how much you like it!
