1tsp stock powder

Method
  • Place oil in large frying pan over medium heat.

  • Add stock powder, paprika, chilli flakes, garam masala and curry powder to pan and stir until fragrant.



  • Add crushed tomatoes, lentils (drained) and coconut cream and stir well to combine.
  • Add maple syrup (this might seem strange but it takes the tartness out of the tomatoes and adds a slight sweetness to the curry).
