Turkey Dahl

Serves: 4
Cooking time: 3 hours



  1. Rinse the split peas and boil them for 10 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, in a heavy ovenproof dish, fry the onion and seeds in a little oil for about 5 minutes until they start to soften, then add the garlic for a minute, and then the turkey.
  3. When the turkey has browned, add the remaining ingredients and season to taste.
  4. Cover, and cook in a very low oven for two hours, until the turkey and split peas are tender and the sauce has thickened.


As you can see in the picture, I served this with Sag Paneer, Cucumber Raita and boiled rice, although it would be fine with simply boiled rice and a good dollop of mango chutney.
