Butter Chicken Dahl

Dahl has been popular, in one form or another, since around 300 BC, giving this humble dish an exceedingly long legacy. For our weeknight version, we've mashed it together with another Indian favourite, butter chicken, for an easy and deliciously comforting one-pot dish full of protein and gentle spice.
