PRINT RECIPE
  • 500g Great Scot Red Split Lentils
  • 4 tbsp Butter, Ghee, Olive Oil or Coconut Oil
  • 1 Medium Onion, Diced
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, Crushed
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Ginger, Grated
  • 1 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • 1 tsp Ground Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 litre Vegetable Stock
  1. Thoroughly wash the lentils in cold running water and set aside.
  2. In a medium size saucepan heat the butter or ghee over medium heat. Add the chilli, turmeric, cumin seeds, onion, garlic and ginger and cook for 5 - 6 minutes or until the onions start to colour.
  3. Stirring constantly add lentils, stock and salt. Bring to a boil, cover with a lid, lower to a gentle simmer for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally to ensure the lentil do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Serve hot with a warm naan and garnish with a dollop of Greek yoghurt, fresh coriander and thinly sliced red chilli if desired.
