Heat 1 tbsp. coconut oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add your garlic, ginger, chili and onion. Sauté 2 - 3 minutes, until the onion is translucent.


Stir in your diced tomatoes, 2 tbsp. water, and spices. Sauté 2 - 3 minutes, until the tomatoes have softened.


Add the remaining Dahl ingredients and bring to boil. Stir occasionally. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 30 - 40 minutes, uncovered, until the lentils have cooked through.

To make the chapati - While the Dahl is simmering, make your chapati. Add all ingredients, except the cooking oil, to a mixing bowl. Use your hands to combine. Knead the dough to form a ball.


Divide the dough into 4 equal parts. Roll each part into a small ball.


Sprinkle oat flour onto a clean dry surface. Place a ball of dough in the center of the space. Sprinkle the ball lightly with oat flour. Use a rolling pin or a glass jar to gently roll the dough into a flat circular shape.


Heat a skillet with 1+ tsp. coconut oil. Add a rolled out chapati, gently using a spatula to transfer the dough from the counter into the skillet. Cook each side 2 - 3 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and continue the process until all chapatis are cooked.
