Serves: 4
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (I just used some olive oil)
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • Quarter teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 small red chillies chopped finely
  • Half teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 garlic pieces sliced thinly
  • 50g red Lentils
  • One can of chopped tomatoes
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Half teaspoon turmeric
  • A few stems of Coriander finely chopped
  • Plain yoghurt to serve
  1. Heat the olive oil
  2. Add the thinly sliced onions, cumin, red chillies, garam masala and garlic and fry gently for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the lentils, can of tomatoes, vegetable stock, sugar, turmeric and chopped coriander, mix and simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. You can then either whizz it through a blender (but not too much - it's nice to have some chunky bits) or serve as it is with some yoghurt.
