Cooking method

  • Fill the pan with water and boil the lentils and the six stock cubes until cooked.

  • Add some curry powder and briefly sauté the tomato paste.
  • Chop the tomatoes and peppers and grill them briefly in the oven as this adds more flavour to the vegetables.  You can also add some garlic and basil to this.
