This tastes so much more interesting than it sounds! It’s also cheap, nutritious, and easy to make. It goes particularly well with a fresh green salad for something a bit different over summer.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onions and garlic, lower the heat and simmer until the onion is translucent.
Add the spices, stir for a few moments, until fragrant, then add the diced pumpkin, potato and/or kumara and mix well.
Add the tomatoes, cooked, drained lentils and enough water to just cover the vegetables.
Cover and simmer 15-25 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender. Check them regularly after the first few minutes.
Stir through the sultanas and check the seasoning, add salt if required.
Sprinkle over finely chopped coriander leaves and serve with basmati rice and freshly heated roti. Or, in the warm summer months, serve with steamed beans, and a fresh green salad.
