Method

  1. Heat the curry paste in a large non-stick saucepan with a splash of the stock. Add the onions and fry for 5 mins until starting to soften. Stir in the aubergine and cook for a further 5 mins – add a little more stock if starting to stick.

  2. Add the lentils, coconut milk and the rest of the stock, and simmer for 15 mins or until the lentils are tender. Add the peppers and cook for 5-10 mins more. Stir through the peas and spinach and cook until spinach has just wilted. Serve the curry with rice and mango chutney.

Hmmm! This recipe is delicious as it is and doesn't need any tweaking at all.

This recipe was absolutely beautiful and so filling. Have been trying to stick to a lower fat diet recently but was struggling with small food portion sizes. This recipe sorted that out. It is very healthy as well with such a variety of vegetables. Will definitely make this again and it will become a regular, top 5, healthy recipe for me.

This was deeeeelicious! I just made a slight adjustment to the recipe above - adding one chopped courgette and a teaspoon of dried chilli flakes (as well as the 2 tbspn of Thai Red Curry Paste). This was perfect for us and a definite winner for myself, my husband and our 15 year old. Hubby even said he liked it so much he'd eat it again the following night! The Mango Chutney goes really well with it. I didn't serve with Rice - instead I grated a raw Cauliflower into a dish that I then covered and microwaved for 6 mins before adding a touch of salt and black pepper. It LOOKED like rice but didn't have the calories. Yum!

Surprisingly nice considering how healthy it is! It doesn't smell particularly appetising while it's cooking, but the final product tastes great. I have made it a few times and use full fat coconut milk. It can be difficult to get a 200ml can and on one occasion I chucked in a full 400ml can without thinking, so just added a good handful more lentils to thicken it up, and it was fine. I thought this didn't smell very nice
