The dhal can be served hot or cooled completely and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. The dhal will thicken slightly as it cools, so stir in a splash of water when reheating to reach your preferred consistency. The dhal can be served on its own as a side dish or with lots of delicious accompaniments for a main. Scatter over some chopped fresh coriander, spring onions or red chilli, add a dollop of natural yogurt (or dairy-free alternative, if required), then serve with cooked basmati rice or flatbreads.
