Slow Cooker Dahl

Slow Cooker Dahl

A great meat free meal, best done in a slow cooker. Really yummy and full of flavour. The split peas are high in fibre, protein, calcium and iron, add in the turmeric which is a great anti oxidant and anti inflammatory and you have a pretty nutritious meal!

Slow Cooker Dahl

Serves 4


300g split yellow peas – rinsed and washed

1 onion chopped

1 tin chopped tomatoes

3cm piece of fresh ginger grated

2tsp turmeric

1tsp cumin seeds

1tsp ground cumin

1 garlic clove crushed

1 garlic clove thinly sliced

300ml veg stock  – You might need to add extra during cooking as the peas will absorb the liquid.

1 hot green chilli

2tsp olive oil

Serve with brown rice or wholemeal chapattis


  1. Add the peas, onion, tomatoes, ginger, ground cumin, crushed garlic and stock and 3/4 of the chilli into the slow cooker, mix well and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-7 hours.
  2. Season well. Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan and add the whole cumin seeds and sliced garlic, fry until the garlic is golden and the cumin smells toasty.
  3. Add the garlic/cumin seeds to the top of the dahl and serve with brown rice or wholemeal chapattis.
