A perfect combination of red lentils, spinach, tomatoes, yoghurt and curry spices come together in this delicious vegetarian curry recipe.
Used different ingredients. I am a vegetarian, and I also don't do much dairy, so I am always looking for recipes full of fresh, colourful foods. For this one, I used silken tofu instead of yoghurt, added a little lime, and used dry beans (soaked and cooked). I left out the chopped tomatoes. I also thought that there was a little something missing, so I added a bit of cayenne and salt and here was the trick: brown sugar. I am not sure how much I added (around 2 tbsp) so I would just play with it until it tasted good. Another thought, instead of the brown sugar, might be sultanas. Once I added the brown sugar, it was DELICIOUS. - 29 Sep 2008
Just came on to find a simple recipe to make. Not big on hot hot chilli and added the raw sugar as suggested by a few on here, and a bit of broccoli. It was absolutely delicious and my partner said it was the best curry I've ever made. I didn't have natural yoghurt to hand so used 'light' coconut milk which made it delicious too. A real winner, we will be having this again and again. Hoping the kids will try it a bit more enthusiastically. - 20 May 2012
Altered ingredient amounts. I'm vegetarian and take any opportunity to make vege food for friends and family. I made this the other night with my boyfriend for his family and it went down a treat. I took the advice of mblatch and added quite a bit of cayenne and brown sugar and i also added more chilli powder than suggested (maybe about 2 - 2 and half teaspoons) just so it had a bit more spice (but not too much I can't handle foods where the spice overpowers the falvour). I thought that it would be hard but it really wasn't. I also added in some cauliflower, just so that there was a bit more to eat rather than just sauce and rice! Give it a go, so YUM! - 21 Feb 2011
