Mellow ginger and turmeric are classic flavourings in red lentil dahl. Raw garlic adds brightness to this dish. This spread is delicious warm but if making ahead, refrigerate up to 1 day then add warm water to loosen. Season again with salt and pepper to taste.

1. Rinse lentils and place in heavy pot with 1 cup (250 mL) water, ginger and turmeric. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.

2. Transfer lentil mixture, remaining ¼ cup (60 mL) water and garlic to a food processor or blender. Blend until very smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Transfer smooth dahl to a serving dish.

3. Garnish with cilantro and serve warm or at room temperature with cucumbers and radishes.

Makes about 2 cups (500 mL); serves 4
