Preparation time


1 cup red lentils
30 ml vegetable oil
1 onion finely diced
1 tbsp fresh ginger root crushed
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 tbsp Rajah Mild Masala curry powder
1 tsp salt
8 fresh curry leaves
1 red chilli seeds removed and finely chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 medium-sized sweet potato peeled and cut into 2.5 cm (1 in.) pieces
3 cups water
1 x 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
handful fresh coriander to serve
handful flaked coconut to serve (optional)

Preparation method

Rinse the lentils under clean, running water then place in a bowl of water and allow to soak.
Heat vegetable oil in a large pot and fry the onion until soft.
Add the ginger, garlic and Rajah Mild Masala curry powder and fry for 1 minute to release the flavour and aroma.
Add the salt, curry leaves, red chilli and tomato paste and fry for a further minute.
Drain the lentils and add them to the pot together with the sweet potato, water and tinned tomatoes.
Stir well and bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat and allow to simmer covered for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
If the consistency is still soupy, continue to simmer uncovered for a further 15 minutes to reduce the liquid.
Season to taste and add a squeeze of lemon juice if necessary then serve with toasted naan bread, fresh coriander and flaked coconut.
