Nourishing and balanced one-pot meals are a blessing, especially when the temperatures are soaring and the desire for cooking is not as pronounced as it is during the cooler months. At the same time, this is a comforting meal that would be satisfying anytime of year.
This straightforward preparation includes lentils, rice, and one of my favorite vegetables, cauliflower. Local produce is just beginning to pop up in the markets and there will be much more to come. In the meantime, this dish with a variety of textures and tangy and spicy Indian flavors has everything you need with most of the ingredients being staples in a cook's kitchen. Each bite is unique and you don't need much else for a thoroughly satisfying dinner. Take care not to overcook the vegetables to maintain freshness and that delightful crunch that really does make each bite a pleasure.
