3 tablespoons thickener (I use bean flour.)
1/4 cup coconut milk
2-3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro

What you do: 

Heat oil in large dutch oven or deep saucepan/frypan. Add onion, spices and saute 3-5 minutes until onion is browned. Add cauliflower and tomato, heat 2-3 min. Add broth and lentils, bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes or until lentils are tender. Stir together sauce ingredients. Place 3/4 of lentil mixture into blender and puree gently 2-secs. Add back with remainder of lentil mixture and stir in sauce with mixture. Serve dhal over hot rice. (I love Kala Jeera from Purcell Mountains.)
