Five kinds of lentils, simmered with onion, garlic, cumin and chilli. Combined with basmati rice, spinach and garam masala, finished with chopped coriander and a squeeze of lemon juice.
We love the simplicity of dal. Healthy ingredients that pack a warming punch. The secret to a good dal is in the lentils — holding enough shape to provide a crunch, with a softness that fills your mouth with flavour. We tested every type of lentil we could find, cooking dal after dal, looking for one that worked. But we soon realised no single type could provide everything we wanted — so we chose five. Together they give the right blends of texture and flavour, with the ability to soak up all that spice. Combined with aromatic basmati rice and crisp, green spinach, our dal is guaranteed to leave you feeling full and satisfied, with a heat that’s comforting but not too hot. Perfect for those cold nights on the mountains.
FIREPOT use high-quality natural ingredients, slow cook them in small batches, and with their dehydration technology give meals a two year shelf-life. There is no freeze-drying involved, no preservatives, and no ingredients you won't recognise. Nutritious, delicious and simple to make.

|7||STAFF'S TASTE TEST - Most of us found this to be quite a tasty veggie option. Some people thought it to be slightly spiced while others thought it to be a little bland - I guess this depends on your taste. Either way it looked good and tasted nice enough. The rice and spinach cooked well but the coriander might have been a little on the strong side. Overall a nice meal with a very generous portion size.|
