Your whole family will love this delicious pumpkin dahl, perfect for those wintery, cool nights. If you like your dahl extra creamy, use coconut cream instead of coconut milk.


  • 200g red lentils
  • 300g pumpkin or sweet potato, diced into 1cm cubes
  • 400mL tin coconut milk
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 tsp garam masala powder
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • ½-1 tsp chilli powder
  • ½ cup chopped coriander (¼ for cooking, ¼ for serving)
  • 1L vegetable stock
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  • Set timer on slow cooker for 4 hours on high or 6 hours on low.
  • While the slow cooker is heating up, add olive oil, onion, garam masala, garlic, ginger, chilli and combine. Allow to cook for 5 mins.
  • Add in lentils, pumpkin/sweet potato, coconut milk, vegetable stock, ¼ cup of coriander, salt and pepper.
  • Place lid on slow cooker and cook on preferred high or low setting for 4 or 6 hours, until the lentils are soft and the dahl is a thick, creamy consistency. If the dahl is too thick for your liking, add in small amounts of water, extra stock or coconut milk until preferred consistency is achieved.
  • Garnish with reserved coriander, pepper and coconut milk.
