3. Heat ghee or oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Add tomato mixture and cook for 2 minutes, then add Spice Tree Organics Malaysian Curry powder and stir for 3 minutes or until fragrant. Add coconut milk and the lentils, and stir to combine. Cook for 5-10 minutes, then season with salt. Add more water, if a thinner dhal is desired. Serve with roti and enjoy!
