Lentils are a student's staple ingredient. They're cheap, healthy and easy to cook, but what can you do to make them taste good?

Try making this spiced pumpkin dahl.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 30-40 minutes
Makes: 4 large servings

Ingredients
1 x 400g tin lentils, drained (or dried if you have them)
400g pumpkin, diced
1/2 brown onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, chopped finely
2 tsp vegetable stock powder (or 2 stock cubes, crumbled)
2 chillies, chopped finely
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp pepper
Boiling water

Method
  • Gently fry the onion, garlic and chillies in a large saucepan until onion is soft and browned.
  • Sprinkle in spices, turn down the heat and stir for 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  • Add lentils, pumpkin and vegetable stock. Pour in enough boiling water to just cover the pumpkin and stir well.
  • Simmer on a moderate heat for 20-30 minutes, or until pumpkin is soft and the stock has evaporated to make a sauce.
  • Mash with a potato masher until the dahl is no longer lumpy, stir again and serve over rice.
