Strange, but true.


A very odd mix but it works very well. The better the quality of the frankfurters, the nicer this dish is.

A quick and economical meal that you probably won't ever have tried before. The frankfurters (hot dogs) and ginger lentils went really well together.

Chef's notes

Obviously fresh ginger would work just as well.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
