Dhansak Curry Pack

Serves: 4 – 6 Vegan Vegan

A traditional, hearty Sunday lunch from the Parsi community. The Dhansak is a dish which combines meat with vegetables and lentils, as indicated by the name - Dhan means grains and sak means vegetables. As an added bonus, these are all cooked together in one pan, which means less washing up!

Traditionally, a Dhansak would be served with fried meatballs (koftas) and rice browned with caramelised sugar.
