The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
Friday night food frenzy!
After the chia seed pudding (another post, another day) we had a tin of coconut milk in need of use. So that says curry to me.
The household chef took the hint.
2 Chopped onions (1red, 1white)
Fenugreek seeds 1tsp
3 Cardamom pods (crushed)
Garum masala 2 tsps
Lentils 1 cup
2 large Fresh Tomatoes (chopped)
2 cloves Garlic
4 small Potatoes diced, peeled
1 small cauliflower separated into florets
I dried red Chilli
I onion stock cube in about 250ml hot water
He fried the dried spices in the oil adding a splash of water to prevent burning. Then added the onion and sautéed it until soft.
Introduce the lentils briefly.
Then he added the tomatoes and coconut to create a more liquid base. This was increased with the stock.
The potatoes need to cook in the liquid. After a few minutes add the cauliflower so it will steam slightly while utilising the heat of the liquid too.
After a few minutes simmering, he remembers he forgot to add the garlic so in it goes. And the chilli also joined the party near the end.
We ate it with gluten free popadoms. The second day it will be even tastier!
