100gm beans soaked overnight (use any beans)

100gm brown lentils

1 litre water or verge stock

1 T curry powder

1 T turmeric

1 T ground coriander

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chilli or cayenne pepper

1 lemon

2 T tomato paste

salt to taste

onions and garlic


Add all ingredients together in a pot (apart from lemon and salt).  Bring to boil and then cook on medium to low heat for around 1.5 hours.  Add more water little by little if it starts to dry up.  The lentils should start to form a sauce after around an hour of cooking.

Add salt and lemon juice to taste and serve with fresh coriander.

Serve with baked potato, kumara or roast cauliflower or as in this picture with sweet corn, salad, hummus and guacamole!
