2 cups dry red lentils
1 teaspoon turmeric
2 teaspoons garam masala

Coconut oil for frying
1 pack Tofu, cut into small pieces (we love Bean Supreme)
- Heat the coconut oil in a saucepan over medium hot heat. Add the onion, garlic and ginger. Cook for 4-5 minutes until fragrant.
- Add all the spices, salt, lentils, tomatoes, stock and coconut milk. Bring to boil, then lower the heat and simmer, stirring frequently for 25 minutes or until lentils are soft and dal is thickened.
