250 gr red lentils (previously soaked for 15min and drained)
5 garlic cloves
1 big chopped onion
1 can peeled tomatoes
3 tbs lime juice
1 tbs tomato purée
1 tsp curcuma
1 tsp chili flakes
2 tsp garam masala
750ml vegetable broth
2-3 tbs sunflower oil
Salt and pepper (at your convenience)
yogurt of your choice
Heat the oil in a pan on medium heat, then add the onions and cook them for 4-5 mins.
Add the garlic and cook it for 1-2 mins.
Add all the spices and let the spices blend with the onions and the garlic for 1-2 mins.
Add the tomato paste and let it cook for another 1-2mins so that all the flavors mix all well together.
Stir in the lentils, the peeled tomatoes, the lime juice and the vegetable broth and mix for a few minutes.
Bring the mixture to a boil.
Once the mixture has come to a boil, reduce the heat to low and cook it covered for about 25mins, mixing occasionally, and then 10mins uncovered.
Serve it with rice and don't forget to add the toppings.
