Stir this mixture and the raisins into the split peas, then cook for a further 10 mins until soft and creamy. Stir in the chickpeas, chutney and coriander and heat through. Season to taste.

  3. Slice the tops off the beef tomatoes and reserve. Scrape out the insides and discard. Spoon the dhal mixture into the tomatoes and replace the tops. Place on a baking sheet and brush with the remaining oil. Cook for 20 mins until the tomatoes have softened.
