I tend to go for chicken curries, but this one is a nice change, and has a lovely thick sauce.

Ingredients

  • 400 g red lentils rinsed
  • 2 carrots peeled and roughly chopped
  • ½ small swede peeled and diced
  • 1 medium potato peeled and diced
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • Salt to taste
  • 400 g can chopped tomatoes
  • 450 g of lean beef cut into 2.5cm cubes
  • Frylight
  • 2.5 cm ginger grated
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp of turmeric
  • 2 tbsp of madras curry powder
  • ½ a tsp of chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 2 tsp of sweetener
  • Juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  • Place the lentils, carrots, swede, potato, onion, turmeric and salt in a large saucepan, and add enough water to cover it by an inch or so. Bring to the boil and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Add the canned tomatoes and cook for a further 10 minutes. Use a blender to whizz this all up together.
  • Fry the meat until browned (you can do this while the lentils and vegetables are simmering), and set aside.
  • Spray a large saucepan with Frylight and place over a medium heat, add the ginger and garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then add the spices and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  • Finally add the lemon juice and sweetener and stir together
  • Add the blended lentil and vegetable mixture, and the cooked beef and simmer on a low heat for about 30 minutes (or you could stick into the oven or slow-cooker to really make the beef tender).
  • Serve with basmati rice, chopped coriander and extra fresh lime.

Notes

I love this with lime pickle (1 syn per tablespoon) or mango chutney (2 syns per tablespoon)
