    Turn the cooker on to high heat before starting your preparation, so the cooker is at the right temperature.​

    Method
    [​IMG]Place the lentils in a sieve and rinse well under cold running water.

    Drain them well and then put them in the cooking pot.
    Add the curry powder, ground coriander, cumin seeds and the boiling chicken stock. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.

    [​IMG]In the meantime, dice the chicken and chop the coriander.

    Chop the spinach, I cheated and used the shredder attachment on the food processor, this is much easier.
    After 2 hours, add the diced chicken to the lentil mixture, press down and make sure the chicken lies in a single layer, this allows the meat to cook more evenly.

    Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or until the chicken is just tender. [​IMG] [​IMG]Add the spinach to the pot, pressing it down into the hot liquid.
    Cover and cook for a further 30 minutes until the spinach is wilted.

    Stir in the chopped coriander, season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
