Carnivores and herbivores alike will appreciate this yummy vegetarian dish!

Serves 60, Prep Time 30 minutes, Total Time 120 minutes


2 cups split mung beans

2 cups split chickpeas

3 cups orange lentils

1 cup brown lentils

2+ cups ghee

1/2 cup cumin seed

3 cups minced onion

1.2-2 cups minced garlic

6 cups shredded carrot

2 tbsp. Tumeric powder


8 cups of “lentils” medium/large pot with 4:1 water ratio, bring to boil

Meanwhile, add 2 cups of ghee to medium saucepan, over high heat, you want it hot enough to almost burn the garlic, when hot add cumin, stir for 30 seconds, stir in garlic/onions, add 2 TBSP tumeric, stir for 1-2 minutes until soft/cooked and pour into boiling dal

Add the 6 cups of shredded carrot at the same time, salt and pepper to taste

Let it come back to a boil (2-3 minutes) and then cover and simmer at least 1-1.5 hours til serving, check its thickness depending on how long the simmer and add water as necessary (bring to boil when adding 2 cups of water, then simmer again). Meant to be thick as porridge, should be allowed to reduce, if you have room on stovetop use a brazier for easier reduction, serve hot
