Ingredients

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Onion(s)

1 large, finely chopped

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Root Ginger

1½ inch slice(s)

Curry Powder

1½ tablespoons

Chilli, Green or Red

2 individual, red

Split Red Lentils, dry

150 g

Vegetable stock cube(s)

2 cube(s)

Okra

350 g

Coriander, fresh

1 tablespoons

Brown rice, Microwaveable

2 pouch(es)

Lime(s)

1 medium, wedges to serve

Instructions

  1. Mist a large nonstick pan with cooking spray and set over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 6-8 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic, ginger, curry powder and the whole chilli and cook for another 2 minutes. Stir in the lentils and stock, then bring to a simmer. Cook, covered, for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and set over a medium-high heat. Add the okra and cook for 5-6 minutes over a medium-high heat, until tender. Add the cooked okra and the coriander to the lentils. Remove and discard the chilli. Continue to cook uncovered for 5 minutes, until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
  3. Prepare the rice to pack instructions, then divide between bowls. Top with the curry, scatter over the coriander and sliced chilli, and serve with the lime wedges.

Notes

To rinse the lentils, put them in a large sieve and hold under cold running water until the water runs clear. The curry can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
