To make the dhal, place a medium-sized pot over a medium heat and add the ghee or oil. Sauté the onion for 2 minutes then add the ginger and the garlic clove then cook for a further 2 minutes.


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.


Combine the oil, honey, za’atar and salt in a small bowl and drizzle over the carrots.


Using your hands, toss the carrots to coat them properly.


Roast for 15-20 minutes or until charred and softened slightly.


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.
