Amazing red lentil curry * with turmeric and coconut milk. Creamy and intense, enriched with spices such as fresh ginger, cumin and cardamom that blend perfectly with the delicate taste of red lentils.
Instructions: Creamy red lentil coconut curry
For this recipe I used red lentils made by Bettini.
Open the cardamom pods and extract the black seeds, set aside. Heat the oil in a pan then add finely chopped garlic and ginger and cook for a minute. Add cumin and cardamom seeds and cook for another minute.
Add onion cut into strips and cook for a minute, then add previously rinsed red lentils, turmeric and chili powder.
Add vegetable stock and cook over a gentle flame, stirring frequently until the lentils are tender (about 20 minutes).
In the last 5 minutes of cooking add the coconut milk. Stir, taste, adjust with salt if necessary and cook until red lentils are soft. Serve with rice, Indian naan bread or like me with creamy polenta. Garnish with chopped parsley and chilli flakes and serve.
