Notes about this recipe

  • Ro_ on October 09, 2020

    I had a little trouble getting the soda bread to come together, but I think it's because I added a smidge too much buttermilk, and I forgot to wet my hands before attempting to mold it. Ultimately, the soda bread came out of the oven absolutely delicious, I loved the Indian spicing and the texture was good. I was thinking that the red split lentils would come out as a kind of lentil curry, actually what I got was more of a soup (dahl) but again the flavours were really good, and it went perfectly with the bread. It was all very filling! The bread definitely makes enough for four, but for the lentils I'd probably make more next time as we easily polished off the full quantity between two people at lunchtime (see picture).
