  • Just before serving, squeeze a lemon or a lime over the dhal for extra flavour.
  • Not everybody loves coriander — you can use parsley sprigs instead.
  • Frozen spinach will work if fresh spinach isn’t available.
  • Use leek when capsicums are not in season.
  • Experiment with more spices: add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon garlic, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, or all of them to create your own personal recipe.
  • Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free stock and check garam masala is gluten free.
