Ingredients

  • 1 splash vegetable oil

  • 1l vegetable stock

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 2 medium white potato, peeled and chopped into small pieces

  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped into small pieces

  • 100g dried red lentil

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 tbsp tikka masala curry paste

Method

  1. Cook the lentils in boiling water for 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Fry the onion and garlic in the vegetable oil in a large pan for 5 minutes, or until the onion is translucent and is beginning to soften.
  3. Add the curry paste and potatoes to the mixture and cook for a further 5 minutes, making sure you stir continuously.
  4. Add the drained lentils and stock to the mixture. Stir well and cook over a medium heat for 30 minutes.
  5. Pour the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth.
  6. Serve immediately.

Handy Hint

If you prefer a chunkier texture to your soup, skip the blending and just mash the potatoes into the mixture and stir.
