Had a go at Toor Dahl – edible enough but not worth writing up. Will tweak the recipe, try again some other time.
However, the version of tarka the recipe employed was a little different to the usual spicyonionmixthing, and I redid it separately today, with some Quorn chicken, to create a fresh-tasting, Indian-influenced stir fry.
Tarka Stir Fry
1/3 third of a courgette, cut into batons
One small tomato, cut into medium chunks
Handful chicken Quorn pieces
Handful frozen peas
Asafoetida, cumin, mustard seed, chilli powder, one bay leaf
Heat the vegetable oil in a wok, add the spices and bay leaf.
When the mustard seeds start to pop, add the quorn and vegetables. Stir fry for 5-6 minutes, until veg tender.
