Our Tarka Dahl recipe combines a warm blend of spices to form a magical dish bursting with flavour. It's quick, simple and very healthy, a dish to tuck into at least once a week.



1 small onion

2 cloves of garlic


🔥 STEP 1 : Soak lentils to soften and boil

  • Empty the lentil pack into a large saucepan and soak with 500ml of warm water.
  • After 10 minutes, put the pan on heat and bring to the boil.
  • Then simmer for 15 minutes or until it's a thick consistency.
  • 🍃 Top tip: During simmering, add 2 chopped tomatoes - (or my secret ingredient, roughly chopped rhubarb for that extra tart flavour).

🔥 STEP 2 - Make a spicy paste!

  • In a separate bowl, combine BANG!'s spices with  50ml of water and blend into a smooth, thick paste.

🔥 STEP 3 : Now the magical bit - The Tarka!  

  • In a frying pan, fry the sliced onion and garlic with a small amount of olive oil. Sizzle in the pan until crispy.
  • Pour the spice paste into the frying pan along with the onion and garlic mixture. Continue to fry on a low heat for about 30 seconds.
  • Then add to the lentil mixture and stir.
  • 🍃 Garnish with heaps of fresh herbs and dig in!
  • We've used our award-winning Dhaka Dahl kit - which contains all you need to make this dish! 🍃 simply add 1/2 an onion + garlic.
