Step 1


Get started by making your naan dough. Heat 1/3 Cup water until about 115 degrees. Warmer than body temperature, but not scalding. In a bowl, combine sugar, water, and yeast into warm water and swirl to combine. Let sit until frothy, or about 10 minutes.

Step 2


While the yeast proofs, prep your veggies. Dice the onion and garlic. Roughly chop the cilantro and set aside.

Step 3


Once the yeast is foamy, add in 1 cup flour (reserving ½ cup for kneading and rolling), yogurt and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Stir to bring the dough together and then turn out onto a flat surface to knead dough for 5 minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and set aside to rise.

Step 4


Get your dahl cooking by preheating a sauté pan over medium heat with coconut oil. Add in the diced onion and garlic along with the cumin, coriander and curry powder. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add in the lentils and top with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes over medium-high, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking to the bottom.

Step 5


While the dahl cooks make the naan. Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll each into a ball. Use a rolling pin to roll dough into a circle about ¼ inch thick. Preheat a sauté pan over high heat. Once hot, place dough into pan and cook for 1 minute on each side. Bubbles should form and they should start to brown. Keep the dough thin, the pan hot and the cook time short for tender naan.

Step 6



Once the lentils are cooked through and the liquid has evaporated, stir in the lemon juice and season with at least ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste. Place the dahl into a shallow bowl. Cut the naan into quarters and place to the side of the naan. Top both the naan and the dahl with fresh cilantro.
