I much prefer to use all fresh products and this dish is made pretty much of canned or jarred goods .I was sceptical but after trying it yesterday it is going to become a regular on our dinner table.
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1onion finely chopped
2 red chillis sliced
1 teaspoon coriander seeds
2 tablespoons curry paste
2 x 400g cans or jars of lentils
400g can of tomatoes
400g can of coconut milk
300ml / 10floz hot vegetable stock
400g / 14oz spinach
1 Heat oil in a large deep pan. Add onions and cook for a couple of minutes. Stir through one chilli, coriander seeds and curry paste
2 Tip in lentils and stir to coat. Add tomato, coconut milk and stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes
3 Stir through spinach and cook until wilted (about 3-4 minutes). Taste to adjust seasoning.
4 Serve with scattered slice chilli, rice and /or Indian bread
There is joy and beauty in everything around us, just take time to see it!
