Ingredients:

1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced

1 tsp cumin seeds
Pinch of garam masala
1 tbsp of coriander stalks, chopped
250g red lentils
100ml low salt vegetable stock
400g chopped tomatoes
400g coconut milk
Basmati rice
½ a cucumber
1 tbsp Greek yoghurt

Directions:

Heat a little oil in a pan, add the onion, garlic, ginger and coriander stalks, and fry for 3-4 minutes until golden. Add the turmeric, cumin, garam masala and cook for a further two minutes.

Pour in the red lentils, cover it with stock, chopped tomatoes and add the coconut milk. Bring to the boil and simmer for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
