How do I make this Lentil Curry?

Step 1

Finely chop the onions, peppers and cauliflower.

Step 2

Along with the spices, add to a frying pan, spray with Low Calorie Cooking Spray and fry on a moderate heat until the veg is soft and golden.

Step 3

Then you need to add the drained cans of green lentils, the peas and the stock pot, along with a little bit of water (a few tablespoons) to bind it all together.

Step 4

Heat until boiling, and then keep it at a light boil for around 20 minutes. Add more water (but not too much) if the curry becomes too dry.

Step 5

Serve garnished with fresh coriander. Enjoy!

  1. This is the second time I have made this dish. It is so easy to make, and really tasty. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  2. Hi
    I’m about to try this recipe but wanted to ask does it matter if I don’t use the garlic sea salt and just use normal as I don’t have it
