How to Make Curried Red Lentils

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 12 steps you must follow to make Curried Red Lentils in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Always remember to wash the lentils in cold water until the water runs clear so that it minimises the scum that comes from boiling it.
  • Step 2
  • Put lentils in a pot with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. Cover the pot, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer.
  • Step 3
  • Add water during cooking as needed to keep covered, until tender. This takes approximately 15-20mins.
  • Step 4
  • Once the lentils are done, set aside.
  • Step 5
  • *At this point, the original recipe calls for a proper draining of the lentils to get rid of access water. However, I opted to keep the water since there wasn’t a lot left in the pot and I prefer to have more gravy to mop up with my bread.
  • Step 6
  • Mix curry paste, curry powder, turmeric, cumin, chili powder, salt, sugar, garlic & ginger in a bowl and set aside.
  • Step 7
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook onions until they are soft and caramalised.
  • Step 8
  • Stir spice mixture into the onions. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring constantly until fragrant (approx 2-3 mins).
  • Step 9
  • Stir in the tomato puree and heat through.
  • Step 10
  • Remove skillet from heat and stir into the lentils.
  • Step 11
  • Add in frozen petit pois without thawing and allow the heat from the curried lentils to heat it through.
  • Step 12
  • Put the pot of lentil & spice mixture back onto the hob and keep it on the lowest heat, stirring occasionally to warm through (about 2-3 minutes) before serving.
