Rice'n'dhal, with curried veg

Twas a cold and drizzly Sunday afternoon, and I didn't have so much inspiration, but I did have a fridge full of vegetables, which needed using before the next batch are delivered on Tuesday.  Also, some garlic and turmeric will help send the lurgy into the ether, finally.

Rice - cook using your chosen method - I bring to the boil in a cast iron pot and then transfer to a low oven to absorb the water.


Red lentils
Olive oil
curry leaves
mustard seeds
coriander seeds
cumin seeds
chili flakes

1.  Boil the lentils until they are done.
2.  Make the tarka by heating the spices in oil - throw onto the cooked lentils - done....

Curried vegetables

Cumin seeds
Fennel seeds
garam masala
vegetable stock

1.  Sautee chopped leek and crushed garlic, add spices of your choice.
2.  Add chopped celery, continue to sautee until softenned a bit - then add veg stock and simmer.
3.  Add garam masala and shredded cabbage.  Simmer until veg is done.

Serve, scoff - delicious, comforting and very good for you.
