    250g red lentils
    1 onion - chopped
    1 carrot - diced
    1 potato -diced
    1 large can tomatoes
    --------------

    2 tbs curry powder
    1 tsp chilli powder
    2 tsp ground coriander
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp turmeric
    (or you could use your own preferred combination on spices).
    2 tbs lemon juice
    2 tbs tomato puree
    1 tsp splenda/canderell
    -------------------

    600g diced chicken breast or lamb steaks
    (You could use stewing steak but that takes longer to cook).
    1 onion - sliced
    1 or 2 peppers - cut into strips
    150g mushrooms - sliced

    ---------------------

    Spray large pan with fry-light, soften onion, carrot & potato. Make a paste with spices etc. and add to pan, cook gently 1 minute. Add lentils and cover with water by about 1". Simmer until tender.
    Add 1 can tomatoes & blitz with blender or put through seive.

    Spray a large frying pan with fry-light, brown meat and add veg, add this to sauce and simmer for about 1/2 hour. If you are using stewing meat, cook in a slow/moderate oven (covered) for about 1 to 2 hours (or until tender).

    This makes about 6 portions and is fab for freezing.

    Blimey, it looks complicated written down, but honestly it isnt. I use a hand held blender, its worth buying one for sauces & soups (Tesco do one dead cheap)

    Thank you so much for that. It sounds really nice so will have to give it a go.

    We have lots of fancy kitchen gadgets but I am rubbish at proper cooking so am going to make more of an effort and will start with this over the weekend.

    Thank you :D
