This spicy, nourishing dhal is a great dish for camping in Scotland – food to fill the belly, spices to warm you inside and out, and garlic to drive off the midges! Lentils are easy to carry and easy to cook and it is up to you how firm or mushy and how spicy and garlicky you want your dhal to be. To make life easy when camping use a spice mix like garam masala or ras el hanout as both have strong cardamom, cumin, clove and black pepper overtones which warm you up from inside. Add chillies
