Radix Eats 03 - Decentralized Dahl

Between getting off the ground, node-running, and planning some viral potential marketing posts for Radix, Radix Eats has taken a bit of a backseat! A fortnightly episode seems to be the correct path going forward, which will allow me to focus on quality. Such as this top-secret decentralized dahl built on the revolutionary PoC consensus mechanism (Proof of Consumption). Ingredients: 500g red lentils

2 large white onions

1½ tbsp garlic puree

¾ tsp cayenne pepper

1½ tsp cumin

⅓ tsp ground cardamon

1 tsp mustard seeds

4-5 bay leaves

1 400ml tin of chopped tomatoes

1 400ml tin of coconut milk

Lemon juice

Salt + pepper

Tamari White basmati rice Garnish: Yogurt Fresh coriander

I like to cook lentils alone in a separate pot when I use them as they have a tendency to stick otherwise, you can do this in 1 large pot, just be aware that you will need to stir very frequently so it will be a lot more hands-on.


  1. Dice onions and add to a pot with a little cooking oil.

  2. As onions are frying, wash lentils and add to a separate large pot. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer, adding water as needed, you should aim for a porridge-like consistency.

  3. After about 20 minutes, once onions are golden, soft, and translucent add in garlic puree and fry for a further 3-5 minutes.

  4. Once the garlic has cooked a little, add in all spices and cook for a further 2 minutes, releasing their flavors.

  5. Once spices are cooked, add the chopped tomatoes & coconut milk. Leave on simmer.

  6. Combine the cooked lentils and the onion/coconut milk/tomato/spice mix and season!

  7. Season with 2 tbsp tamari, 2 tbsp salt, 2 tsp pepper, 1 tbsp brown sugar, and lemon juice to taste. Adjust seasoning until satisfied with the flavour.

Voila. Decentralized dahl accomplished! Serve with white basmati rice, yogurt & fresh coriander.

If you want to make this into a wonderful soup, just add water until you hit soup-like consistency and adjust the seasoning. It freezes extremely well, I make 5x this batch and it lasts me most of the winter, it's the ultimate comfort food and as always, super healthy! To your health! JoshC
