  • Wash lentils first and throw away any floaties.
  • Mix the whole lot together and put in microwave and cook until mushy.(About 30 mins)
  • Keep stirring and adding more water if needed.
  • Add more curry paste if you like it hotter, I used Rogan Josh which is a medium heat.
  • Add onions chopped, peas, sultana's, corn if you wish.
  • Tell us what you think
