Squash & Coconut Dhal

I have used red lentils to make this dhal, but you could easily use yellow split peas (chana dal). The squash could be replaced with carrots or swede. It’s quite a sweet dish!

We like quite a thick dhal, but you can add either more milk, water or stock if you like it a little thinner.

Makes about 10-12 portions (great to freeze)

*3 medium onions (chopped)
*5 gloves of garlic (chopped)
*Inch of fresh ginger (grated)

*400g of squash in large chunks
*large tin (300g ish) of pineapple in juice
