Ingredients

  • 1 cup red lentils
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs cut in halves
  • 1 large onion sliced fine
  • 6 garlic cloves sliced fine
  • 1 tbsp. julienne of fresh ginger
  • 2 tbsp. Goan Cuisine Tandoori Paste
  • 1 cup crushed tomato
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ bunch fresh coriander chopped

Method

Wash lentils until the water runs clear and drain well.

Place drained lentils in saucepan, and add just enough hot water to cover and 1 tsp salt.

Cook open on medium heat, stirring occasionally and scooping away the ‘scum’ that appears on the surface

Add hot water if required and cook until lentils are soft [you will notice the colour changes to a light yellow]

Keep aside

Heat oil in saucepan and hard fry garlic and ginger.

When brown add onions, reduce heat and cook until golden brown

Add the spice paste and stir through

Add diced tomato cook for another 5 minutes

Add cooked lentils, mix well and simmer, covered, on low heat for 10 minutes [adding hot water if required] so that curry is not too thick.  Stir from time to time because lentils tends to stick to pan

Season with salt if required

Add eggs with the yolks facing up

Garnish with chopped coriander.

Serving Suggestions
