    Mince garlic. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ½" dice. Stem jalapeño, halve and cut into a small dice. Reserve seeds. Remove ribs of kale and coarsely chop.

  2. 2

    Start the Daal

    Place 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium pot over medium heat. Add mustard and stir with a wooden spoon until fragrant and popping, 30-60 seconds. Add garlic, onion, jalapeño, ginger and cook until soft and golden brown, 5-7 minutes. Add a pinch of salt. While daal cooks, start rice.
