- 1 chopped chilli
- 1 tomato finely chopped

Stir in the tomato, lentils, potatoes and salt and let all this simmer until the potatoes are soft and the lentils are cooked. Check the mixture every 5 minutes, and add a splash of water if necessary.
- Once dish is cooked, dissolve the soup powder in the water and stir through your dish and allow to cook.
