In a medium-sized saucepan, fry a chopped onion in 3 tablespoons butter until golden brown.

Now add two crushed cloves of garlic and a finely chopped green chilli (you can replace with a green pepper). Then add 2 teaspoons ground cumin and 2 teaspoon ground coriander. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes.

In the meantime, rinse 1 cup red lentils and drain. Place the lentils in a saucepan with 2 cups boiling stock (the better your stock, the better your lentils will taste) and ½ teaspoon turmeric and simmer slowly, covered, for 10 minutes.

Add two peeled and chopped tomatoes and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

Season with salt, pepper and ½ cup of coconut milk.

A spoon of cream can serve as a substitute for coconut milk. It’s delicious with basmati rice.
