Simple Sweet Potato and Spinach Dal
This is one of the easier recipes in the module but there is some prep involved so it’s worth making sure everything is chopped and ready before moving on to the method.
Sprinkle with some chopped spring onions and shredded basil leaves to complete this simple dish.

1 red onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
1 red chilli, chopped
1 tsp turmeric
2 tsp cumin
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped in to chunks
