Curry Recipe for Becca


Likes to cook
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)

Oooh that does sound nice. Might try that when I'm home alone


starting again!
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
