Loaded Daal with Cauliflower Steak and Quick Pickled Onions

BTW I have real issues with calling any vegetable steak but apparently it’s the done thing and who am I to question that?

I’m sure, other people must do this. Most daal recipes scream comfort to me but this is another level of comfort. I have added prawns before and it tastes divine. I know it sounds weird. I add chicken quite often too.

BTW I’m a little obsessed with cauliflower? And apparently so is the rest of the food world. I mean did you see Marcus making that cauliflower steak on Masterchef?That was the best looking cauli I did ever see. It’s kind of like a new obsession and there is cauliflower everything now. Even Oprah has come out with a cauliflower crust pizza. 

So other cauli recipes on the blog include:

Cauliflower Pizza with Chickpeas and Burrata

Vegan Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos

Crispy Cauliflower Salad

Pasta in a Roasted Garlic and Cauliflower Alfredo Sauce

So needless to say..one is a little obsessed. I am equally if not more obsessed with dal. So this was always going to be a winner in my book. Plus dal is perfect cold weather food and today it is extra cold. Like brain freeze cold. I waited around in town for the shops to open, so I could pick up some layers to wear underneath and on top of my clothes but it was too cold to hang about and I just ended up running home instead.

Also it’s healthy. Cauliflower and lentils and an egg and pickled onions. OH YES. Also the kids won’t turn their noses up at it. Well that’s if they like cauliflower. My son doesn’t so I had to lift it out of his bowl. 

I do hope you try this soon. Obviously you can make it with any dal including your own favourite dal recipe…and you can add any toppings. So this is almost a non recipe.. and you could just half boil your egg so it drips into the daal and oh gosh i’m drooling..must go.
