Sweet Potato and Lentil Curry

This was our delicious dinner last night!

  • 2 tablespoons  Sharwood's Rogan Josh Curry Paste
  • 3/4 cup red lentils
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 480 g sweet potatoes, cut into 2cm cubes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock (made with stock cubes) (I just used whatever stock I had in the cupboard!)
Heat a medium saucepan and add the curry paste. Cook, while stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the lentils, bay leaves, onion, sweet potato, ginger and chicken stock. Bring to the boil and reduce the heat to low.  Or until the sweet potato is cooked. Season with salt and black pepper.   I served it on sume jasmine rice with some puppodums (spelling!!??).

Very easy and very yummy!  And Darren ate it... no meat and all! 

Are you married to a man that thinks that if there is no meat in the dinner then clearly it's not 'dinner'?


  1. Looks delicious and deliciously simple! Yum. Although my hubby is happy to go vege quite often, my Dad when growing up was not. I remember that every time he was away for work, we would eat vegetarian every time. Interestingly enough, my Mum and sister are both vegetarian now.

  2. Um YUM! I love me a good curry... and those papadums look sensational! xo

  3. Yum! I'm going to have to try this it sounds so simple..right up my alley!!


Welcome poppets! I'd love to hear what you have to say so please dont go without saying it!
