Add the lentils, spices and chilli and cook for a minute or until fragrant.
Add the water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and stir occasionally.
Cook for 15-25 minutes or until the lentils are tender and the liquid is absorbed.
Season well and add the lime juice.
Place in a food processor and blend until completely smooth, light and fluffy.
For the carrots, preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4.
Place the carrot halves in a lined roasting dish.

To serve, spread the whipped dhal in a large serving dish and scatter the roasted carrots on top. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with the toasted seeds and salt.
