    Large pot
    1 onion, cut into chunks
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1 tbsp curry powder or paste
    1 tbsp turmeric
    1 tbsp cumin
    1 tbsp garam masala
    1 tbsp coriander (dried)
    a few tsps Tabasco or chilli sauce
    2 tbsps lemon juice
    1 tbsp oil
    1 cup lentils (or drained from tin)

    1 can lite coconut cream or coconut powder

1. Heat oil in large pot and add onions, garlic and spices including the spicy sauce. Fry these together for about a minute.

2. Add all other ingredients and stir. Bring to the boil and then turn down to simmer - about 50-60 minutes.

3. The dahl should reduce into a creamy consistency - keep stirring and simmering until thickened - salt and pepper to taste.

4. Serve with basmati rice and naan bread (extra calories, of course!!)
