Ayurvedic Lentil Curry

Ayurvedic Lentil Curry

Posted 2016-05-10 by noshnoshfollow
Lentils are packed full of plant-based protein, and the two varieties used here are generally very easy on the digestive system.

This curry makes a great change to a meat-centred dish, while still proving filling and satisfying.

Quick and easy to make, this Ayurvedic delight is a dry curry, so if you would prefer more 'sauce' to it, feel free to add some more water along the way.



Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
90g red lentils
90g yellow mung beans
900ml water
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1 1/2 ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
2 brown onions, finely sliced
2 tbsp garlic, crushed
2 tbsp ginger, grated
4 portions steamed brown rice

Method
  • Place the lentils and water in a large saucepan and gently bring to a simmer.

  • Stir through the turmeric, cumin, coriander, onion, garlic and ginger, cover, and cook for 30 minutes.

  • Add additional water if the mixture absorbs it too quickly, and stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

  • Serve warm on a bed of steamed brown rice, and season with cracked black pepper and/ or lemon juice if desired.
