Pumpkin, Swede and Red Lentil Curry

I don’t really have time to do a full post as I need to rush to get to work, but I wanted to share with you last nights wonderful meal. 

Pumpkin, Swede and Red Lentil Curry 🙂

What you will need…

  • 1/2 cup of cooked swede
  • 1/2 cup of cooked pumpkin
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 inch of ginger grated
  • 1/2 cup of lentils
  • 1 can of tinned canellini beans
  • 1/2 tsp of turmeric
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tsp of hot madras powder
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • 1 tsp of mustard seeds
  • 1/2 tsp of dried chilli flakes
  • 2 tbsps of tomato puree
  • 200 ml of vegetable stock

First fry off the onion in some canola oil until softened.  Stir in the garlic and ginger and add the spices.  Cook for a few minutes on a low heat and keep stirring in the spices so that they do not burn.  Add the swede and the pumpkin and stir in the tomato puree.  Next add the stock, red lentils and the cannelini beans.  Allow the mixture to simmer for 15 minutes, until the lentils are cooked and the sauce has reduced. If the curry sauce has reduced but the lentils are not cooked, just add a little more stock.

Bon Appetite! 😀
