Cauliflower Dahl with Kale Chips and Turmeric Rotis

Posted by Mandy Sacher on March 04, 2017

This delicious dish is absolutely loaded with nutrition and flavour. It’s a fantastic way to introduce children to the wonderful variety of different taste combinations, textures and curry based stews.

Bursting with vegetable goodness, this recipe contains immune boosting onion, garlic and bone broth, antioxidant bursting turmeric as well as protein and fibre rich lentils, peas and cauliflower.  Kale is notoriously difficult to get little ones excited about – these chips offer an alternate different and tasty solution.

This recipe has a special little something extra… some vibrant turmeric rotis, made completely from scratch using the Rotimatic that I was sent to review.  I’ve always been passionate about reducing the presence of hidden sugars, preservatives and nasties in many of our household staples (like our lunchbox wraps and breads) so I was eager to try this out.

I found the Rotimatic surprisingly simple to use – only needing to add the basic ingredients (flour, water and oil) and the machine took care of the rest… from mixing to cooking in just 90 seconds!  This meant that I could more easily multi-task and I enjoyed the ability to customise and add different herbs, spices or flavours as required.  I also appreciated the fact that you can use various different wholegrain flours, switch to your own choice of high-quality oils (like extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil) and you also have complete control over the amount of sugar and salt content.

Wraps form a large part of the average Australian family’s meal and lunchbox plan and this provides an exciting, healthy, simple and nutritious option for families.  If anyone is interested in purchasing a Rotimatic – use this link to qualify for your $100 discount and to watch this machine in action.
