1 1/2 pounds
potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch dice
2 1/2 cups
dry red lentils
1 (14.4 ounce) can
whole tomatoes, chopped
1 1/4 cups
salt and pepper to taste
chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Tasted very good and different although we eat similar food mostly. One needs to soak the lentils in water half an hour before cooking ( right at the beginning of cooking). I also add all the sour ingredints like chutney, vinegar, tomato, etc. at the last after the lentils have softened. Used crushed sweet mango pickle instead of the chutney. Thanks!!
interesting flavors but didn't really work for us. very glad I made it once but won't make it back into my standard rotation.
i used this as a base to use things up in my kitchen. i used three medium potatos, 2 small onions, 5 cloves garlic (more than the usual person!) and browned it in olive oil, then added the curry, then 3 minutes later added 11/2 cups of vegetable stock, 3/4 cup of red lentils, 1x 400 gram of crushed tomatoes, salt and pepper. then simmered for 20 minutes and it was absolutely LOVELY. will use this as a base recipe and will try different vege's and ingredients in the future.
Fabulous!!! I used frozen cauliflower and diced tomatoes. Also added one large sweet potato and 4 small potatoes instead of the 1 1/2 lbs of white potatoes. So delicious and healthy!! Thank you for any other recipes you may offer. So easy to make!
This was very good! Will definately make again. I served with Jasmin rice. One child really enjoyed the cauliflower, the other the potatoes. Will probably add a bit of cayenne next time.
Used brown lentils as didn't have red lentils...precooked them about 25 minutes...all in all, pretty good. I'd go out of my way next time to get red lentils though, as they cook softer and I felt the curry needed thickened up a bit as slightly softer lentils would have done. Might also add some cumin or coriander for a more full-bodied spice flavor.
I did a recipe search for "red lentils" and chose this recipe because I had MOST of the ingredients on hand. I was unable to find mango chutney and simply didn't have time to make it. I did add some diced, fresh mango in its place. It was such a small amount that it really disappeared into the dish. I think it could easily be left out and wouldn't be missed. I found that the dish took MUCH longer to cook than indicated - almost 50 minutes to cook the potatoes through. I had to add at least an extra cup of vegetable stock during cooking. The result was delicious. I will make this again!
Absolutely amazing! I used the mango chutney recipe on this site. I am so happy to have found such a flavorful and delicious recipe. My hubby asks for this at least once a week.
