750 g, cut into 3cm pieces

fresh ginger

1 tbs, finely grated

garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

garam masala

1 tsp

ground cumin

1 tsp

ground coriander

1 tsp

½ tsp

light coconut milk

1 can(s), (1x400ml can)

sunflower oil

1 tbs, or canola oil

brown onion

1 medium, thinly sliced

2 whole

dry lentils

2 tbs, red, rinsed, drained

Instructions

  1. Combine beetroot, ginger, garlic, garam masala, cumin, coriander, turmeric and coconut milk in a large bowl.
  2. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook onion and curry leaves, stirring, for 5 minutes or until well browned. Add beetroot mixture, lentils and 1 cup (250ml) water. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour 20 minutes or until lentils and beetroot are tender.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Fresh coriander, plus pappadums (cooked in the microwave) and 99% fat-free plain yoghurt. TIPS: Make sure the lentils are well stirred through the beetroot and that you simmer the soup over low heat or the lentils may catch (stick) at the base of the pan. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days or freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave or in a saucepan.
