Great veggie curry, healthy and wholesome. A combination of two of my favourite recipes from this site!

- Rice, poppadoms and mango chutney to serve
- 1 tsp mustard seeds
- 1 inch fresh tumeric - grated
- Half an inch fresh ginger - grated
- STEP 1Chop and fry the onion until it's soft. Add the mustard seeds, tumeric, ginger and the chilli if you're using it. Fry for another few minutes. Add the curry paste.
- STEP 2Chop the peeled potato and the aubergine into small pieces. Add the vegetables and the lentils, mix, then add the stock. Add the bay leaf. Bring to the boil then simmer until the potato is soft.
