Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Peel ginger using a spoon's edge — you'll be able to maneuver around the knobbly bits more easily! Finely chop cilantro. Peel, then finely grate 1 tbsp ginger (dbl for 4 ppl). Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Using a strainer, rinse lentils.
Heat a medium pot over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 3-4 min. Add garlic, ginger and Dal Spice Blend. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Add broth concentrate, coconut milk, lentils and 1 1/2 cups water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the same pot. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until lentils soften, 12-14 min.
While dal cooks, heat a large non-stick pan over high heat. When hot, add naan to the dry pan. Toast, until warmed through, 1-2 min per side. (TIP: Warm them one at a time if your pan doesn't fit all of them at once.)
When lentils soften, add spinach. Stir together, until wilted, 1-2 min.
Divide Dal between bowls and sprinkle over cilantro and shredded coconut. Serve naan on the side.
