The Method

Select the SAUTE function, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the onion and stir regularly for ~2 minutes until it begins to soften.

Add the curry paste and water and continue to stir for a further 1 minute, then cancel the SAUTE function.

Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine, then put the lid on and select the CHUNKY function.

When the program has finished, use the SMOOTH+ function for ~5 seconds to break down the ingredients until the dhal is thick and creamy. Open the lid and season to taste before serving.
