This light, flavorful golden dal made with cauliflower and chickpeas is great for a quick workweek dinner. Light coconut milk makes this dal so luxurious, rich and decadent in flavor while still feeling light and energizing. It definitely won’t weigh you down and I can promise you it will warm or comfort you on a chilly day. While this dal (like a rich stew) is beautiful and delicious on its own, you can enjoy it over basmati rice topped with chopped parsley or cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice. Cooking without broth results in a thicker consistency. If you want it thinner and more “soupy” you can dilute it with some vegetable broth. You might also want to increase the spices as the extra broth will dilute the flavors.

Tips:

  • The smaller you cut the cauliflower florets, the faster they will cook! I opt for small florets with cross-cut “stems” to speed up the cooking time.
  • Try a variant where the cauliflower is roasted in the oven instead of cooking in the stew. Drizzle the florets with a little oil and roast them in the top rack of your oven at 220 °C for 10 to 15 minutes (depending on their size).
  • You can also use zucchini, carrots or other vegetables. In my dal I used a lonely zucchini from my fridge.
  • Make sure you use a good quality turmeric powder as a bad tasting one can negatively affect the flavors. I like fresh turmeric better than the powder.
  • Not a cilantro fan? Simply omit or prepare with parsley. No big deal!
