I absolutely love to experiment and combine traditional dishes from all over the world. This dish combines the classic Indian Dal with a remake of a traditional Mexican corn tortilla. Together with the fresh chanterelles, green beans, basil oil and currents, the ingredients form a super tasty, flavorful and colorful composition.
The dish is meant to be prepped in Summer when fresh Chanterelles and Beautifully Red Berries shine from the stands of your local farmers market. Ready to try the colorful creation? Read on.
The Dal, by itself, is super easy to prep. What will take some time is to get the tortilla ready, prep all the veggies and to decorate. I, for example, always batch prep tortillas and just take them out of the fridge or freezer before prepping a dish. In the following, I give you a brief overview on what to prep for this dish:
Tortilla Base: I used this authentic Mexican Corn Tortilla recipe with berries as a base.
Chantarelles, Lentil Dal & Green Beans: No special equipment or ingredients are needed apart from the cooking rings I used to serve the Dal . From an ingredient perspective, the only thing you may not have at home is savor which adds a great aroma to your green beans.
Toppings: I love to top my plates with fresh greens (Sprouts or Microgreens), which you can either grow yourself or purchase from a local organic supermarket. Besides, I highly recommend to add any crunch topping, such as nuts or hemp seeds to add texture to the meal as well as a delicious oil. I used my homemade Basil-Parsley oil which adds additional moisture and the perfect aroma to the dish.
