Enjoy a super quick vegetarian dinner that’s bursting with flavours with this mango chutney coated halloumi sweet potato dal from HelloFresh.
I love a quick and easy recipe that I can make from scratch in under an hour, but putting a meal together at the end of a busy day is often the last thing I want to do.
In my case, thinking about what to make for dinner on those days is more stressful than actually cooking said dinner. Talk about that mental load. Deciding what to cook and then sourcing the ingredients is a chore in itself.
So when HelloFresh asked me if I wanted to cook and review one of their recipes, I thought ok, that’s one less meal I have to think about.
Joking aside, I decided to cook their delicious mango chutney coated halloumi sweet potato dal because I love this sort of flavour explosion. Plus, if it’s ready in under an hour, I’m already a fan.
Easy to make but super healthy recipes
To choose the recipe I wanted to recreate, I had a look at the most popular recipes section on the website, and it was a rather tough choice because there are so many great vegetarian recipes that caught my eye.
Each recipe is designed to take under an hour to cook from scratch, with many options under 30 minutes. I liked that the recipes are for are really fresh, healthy food that you can prepare even at the end of a hectic day in the time it would take you to order and wait for takeaway food.
The sweet potato dal is super easy to make and the addition of fried halloumi that’s then coated in mango chutney gives it a very interesting twist. The meal is suitable for vegetarians, and I found it very filling when served with naans.
What do you need to make this sweet potato dal?
The recipe is ready in 35 minutes and it only requires a handful of ingredients:
- Sweet potato, that you’ll have to chop into small chunks, toss with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and then bake for 25 minutes while you take care of the rest.
- Halloumi cheese — this gets fried separately and then you cover it in mango chutney for a very interesting sweet/salty combo.
- Mango chutney, to coat the halloumi in
- Red split lentils — I loved the texture of this dal, and I think the lentils were mostly responsible for that
- Korma curry paste, which gives a sophisticated flavour to the meal
- Onion, garlic, and vegetable stock
- Spring onion to garnish
I served the sweet potato dal with coriander and garlic naans, but I think it would also go well with basmati rice.
