Coconut Pineapple Dhal

I know it’s quite controversial with pineapple in savoury dishes, but I have to admit… I love it 😂🍍 I thought it would go nicely in a creamy coconut dhal. And it did! It’s a proteinpacked meal and very filling and satisfying! Perfect 😃 It goes well with rice, quinoa, naan bread or even on it’s own. You can of course omit the pineapple if you’re not into that kind of stuff😂
