#vegan street food – Sri Lankan Dahl and last night’s parotta

Our venture in to vegan street food continued today with coconut and lentil dahl with a spicy onion topping all mopped up with left over parrota:

It was very nice, not as spicy as I had expected, but that could be because we both have the lurgy. R couldn’t taste it at all and it has mustard seeds in the topping!
This meal is something I could make in large batches and freeze for quick dinners. Its protien level makes it extra good, the lentils having over 23 grams of protein for each of us, a great boost when boots web md recommend at least 45 grams for a woman my age each day.

So in spite of being ill, we vote this meal a success and give it a foodie cool board score of cool.
