Curried Lentil Nachos

Posted 2018-03-19 by Annalisa Brownfollow
Using pappadams as nachos creates a perfect blend of flavours and textures when topped with curried lentils. These nachos are easy to make, packed with protein and a healthy way of getting kids to eat more lentils and vegetables.

Curried lentil nachos are a novel way of serving kids and adults lentils and vegetables.


Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
¾ cup brown lentils
½ cup sweet potato
¾ cup peas
2 tablespoons chives
2 tablespoons coriander
1 tablespoon Massaman curry paste
1 tablespoon vegetable stock
1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
400 ml coconut cream
Pappadams for serving

Method
  • Rinse the lentils in hot water, drain and set aside.

  • Dice the sweet potato, chives and coriander.

  • Vegetables and lentils are the mainstay ingredients in this lentil stew.


  • Heat the oil in a large saucepan, then add the chives, coriander, Massaman paste, fish sauce, rice malt syrup and saute for 1-2 minutes.

  • Add the coconut cream and bring to the boil then reduce to a low heat.

  • Add the lentils and sweet potato and simmer for 30 minutes.

  • In the last 5 minutes of cooking add the peas and 4 tablespoons of water. If your preference is for a thinner curry add additional water. We opted for a thicker almost stew-like consistency and therefore kept to 4 tablespoons.

  • Our preference is for a thicker almost stewlike lentil curry. If you prefer a thinner curry, simply add extra water to the mix.


  • Serve the curried lentils onto a nest of pappadams.
