Delish healthy curried lentil dish that can be served as a dip with warm flat/turkish bread at parties or as a hearty warm meal with rice.


  • Splash of good oil

  • Split red lentils 2 cups

  • 1 large Onion chopped

  • 1tbls Cumin ground

  • 1/2 tbls Corriander ground

  • Chilli flakes to taste (fresh is better if you have avail)

  • Chopped tomato

  • 2 to 3 cups depending on desired consistency - Chicken or veggie stock

  • Lemon juice

  • Fresh chopped corriander


  • 1.

    I use a pressue cooker because it is faster but you can just cook in a covered pan.

  • 2.

    Heat oil in pan and add onion. Cook for 2 mins or until soft and add spices and cook for 1 min. Add lentils and stir through to flavour and then add tomato and stock. Cover and cook until lentils are soft. Remove from heat and add lemon juice and chopped corriander to taste. You can blend till smooth if desired or serve as is. Delicious!
