Lentil curry recipe - BBC Food image

A one pot lentil curry that’s full of flavour. Perfect if you’re batch cooking as it freezes brilliantly! This recipe uses tamarind paste which you can swap for lemon juice, if you prefer. Serve with freshly cooked rice or chapatis. Each serving (without the rice or chapatis) provides 351 kcal, 18.5g protein, 44g carbohydrates (of which 5g sugars), 10g fat (of which 1g saturates), 6g fibre and 0.6g salt.

Prep Time 30 minutes

Cook Time 1 hours

Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 14

3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
5 curry leaves
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
80g/2¾oz brown onions, finely chopped (about 1 medium onion)
½ tsp mild chilli powder
1 tsp ground turmeric
300g/10½oz red lentils
1.2 litres/2 pints warm water
80g/2¾oz tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tsp caster sugar
1 tsp tamarind paste
salt
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander, to garnish

Steps:

  • Place the garlic and curry leaves in a pestle and mortar. Crush to a coarse paste and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over a medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and, once they begin to pop, add the onions. Fry for 6 minutes until softened and then add the garlic and curry leaf mixture. Stir well, frying for 1 minute. Add the chilli powder and turmeric. Stir well and add the lentils and water. Season with salt and bring to the boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes with a lid on, stirring halfway through.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and sugar and simmer for 5 minutes without the lid. Stir well, making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Mash the lentils lightly with the back of the spoon as it begins to thicken. Add a little water if required.
  • Add the tamarind paste and stir well. Garnish the lentil curry with coriander and serve with rice or chapatis.
