Creamy lentils with Mashed potatoes, Citrus Salad and Toasted Bun

I have been meaning to my version of Creamy Lentils with Mashed Potatoes, which I found here, for a very long time now.

I am a huge fan of lentils and sabut masoor is one of my favourite.

So here’s what I did:

For Creamy Lentils-

1-1/2 Cup……………………Pre Soaked and cooked Sabut Masoor [I soaked it for 3-4 hrs then pressure cooked until it was almost cooked] The pic below is of the soaked dal.

1………………………………..Medium Size Onion [Finely chipped]

1………………………………..Medium Size Tomato [Finely chipped]

200Ml…………………………Cream [I used Amul fresh cream]

3-4…………………………….. Red Chillies [Finely chopped]

3……………………………….. Pods of garlic [Finely Chipped]

1 inch………………………… Ginger [Finely chipped]

1 Tbsp……………………….. Butter

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste

Method:

  • Put the butter in a heated pan and add the ginger, garlic and chillies. Saute for a min.
  • Add the onions and cook till they turn translucent.
  • Add the tomatoes and a dash of water, cover and let it cook till tomatoes reduce.
  • Add pre cooked lentils, salt and pepper and about 1 cup water.
  • Let it simmer until the water reduces.
  • Add the cream and keep the lid on, on a low-medium heat.
  • Stir ocassionally.
  • Cook until the lentils are almost dry.

For Citrus Salad:

1 bag………………………………….. Mixed Salad Leaves [I use Namdhari’s Salad Leaf bags, they are very handy and fridge friendly]

1……………………………………….. Medium sized orange [Make segments from half of the orange and get the juice out of the other half]

Zest of 1/2 an orange

12-15………………………………….. Roasted Cherry tomatoes [I cut the tomatoes in half, put some olive oil, salt, pepper and basil on them and put in a 220 degree C oven for 10-15 min]

Pepper to taste

Salt to taste

1 Tbsp…………………………………. Olive Oil

Fist ful of roasted walnuts [Optional]

Method:

  • Mix all the ingredients just before serving

For Mashed Potatoes:

I used a very simple classic recipe from here.

For bun:

Halved the burgen buns and put it to toast in the oven at 200 degrees for 5-7 min.

Tada… Here it is 🙂
