Potato Lentil Curry

I love a great curry, and even moreso, one that comes together pretty fast and tastes better the longer it sits.


Serves 4


  • 800g potatoes, diced


  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced


  • 2tsp mustard seeds


  • 2tsp cumin seeds


  • 6 lime leaves


  • 2 large onions, diced


  • 4 large tomatoes, diced


  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved


  • thumbsized piece of ginger, chopped


  • 1tsp turmeric


  • 150g red lentils


  • 500ml vegetable stock


  • 1tsp sugar


  1. Pop the diced potatoes into boil water and simmer until tender – around 15minutes.
  2. Heat oil until hot and stir in the mustard seeds until popping. Turn down the heat and stir in the cumin seeds and lime leaves.
  3. Add the onion and ginger and cook until soft. Stir in tomatoes and turmeric.
  4. Drain potatoes and stir into the mix with the lentils, stock and sugar. Simmer for 15mins longer. Serve with salad and flat bread.
