Coconut lentil curry.

A nice easy recipe with a dhal like texture, no need to precook anything [big fat tick from me] and one you can sling in the slow cooker, forget about for several hours and then find you've got a tasty meal ready for you. There is no photo...it's not a culinary looker!

170g red lentils, 1 diced onion, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1/2 thumbed sized piece of root ginger [I used powdered as that what I had] peeled and finely grated, 1 tbsp garam masala, 1 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/2 tsp turmeric, 2 tbsp tomato puree, 1 can tomatoes, 200ml coconut milk, 200ml veg stock, salt & pepper.

Put all the ingredients into the slow cooker, season and cook on low for six hours.

Friday supper sorted! Even the chaps who are intensely suspicious if I try and sneak anything that might be dhal in under the radar wolfed this down.

  2. Eureka! And I have all the ingredients on the shelf, save the red lentils. Shall definitely give this a try, albeit with fresh, ripe Romano tomatoes from ye Victory Garden. Methinks this will freeze nicely!
