Sweet Potato Dahl

Sweet Potato Dahl

Sweetness In The Savoury

I found my new favourite – easy, healthy, delicious and filling Indian influenced savoury meal!!!
I’m going to be converted to savoury sooon 😅 It has been a joke for years that one day I’ll find the savoury more satisfying to make and experiment with than the sweet. I didn’t agree until now, let’s see what the future brings – @my_life_my_savouries 🤣 unlikely still but never say never!

I’m sure I give an impression I live only on cakes and chocolate. Well, not that far from the truth but most of the time I am too hungry to prepare something proper and fancy, not to mention have willingness to measure and take photos before collapsing from hunger.
And also I find it less interesting from the decorative side. Desserts on the other hand have endless possibilities.

But here it comes! To my savoury food fans!

Created this dinner with a touch of sweetness thanks to the sweet potato. Inspired by the Indian dishes and made easier for everyday life.
