Masoor dhal are red lentils and this spicy red lentil dish can be enjoyed as a starter, or as a main with rice or naan.
To speed things up, I cook the veg in the microwave and sometimes use tinned tomatoes. This makes a quick dinner served with rice or naan.
An easy salad that will impress dinner guests. It is also versatile - summer berries are a nice alternative.
This is a chopped salad with lots of tomatoes, onions, cucumbers and green peppers. Fresh parsley, basil and garlic are added before chilling to allow the flavours to blend.
Green soya beans, sweetcorn, cherry tomatoes and black beans combine to make a colourful salad with a light lime vinaigrette dressing.
These make a lovely change for a summer barbecue party and can be marinated in advance. Serve with lemon wedges and steamed basmati rice.
