Indian Hot Pot

I got home late from work, so I thought that I would be making a pantry cupboard dinner tonight (soup or pasta and sauce) but I dropped into the indian grocery on the way home in hope of getting some inspiration; and I got some lentils, coriander and tomatoes.

Hot Pot

- Olive Oil
- 1 onion
- Pinch each of Yellow Mustard, Fenugreek, & Fennel seeds
- 4 cloves garlic
- two celery stalks
- 1 tomato
- 1 carrot
- 200g tomato paste
- 3 small potatoes
- Vegetable stock
- salt and pepper
- brown rice
- red lentils (washed)
- yellow chana dhal lentils
- Plain natural yoghurt
- 1 bunch of coriander

Sweat in saucepan first set of ingredients in order starting with the Olive Oil

Boil in separate saucepan all the other ingredients until rice and lentils are done (can pre-cook these).

When frying is done add to bigger saucepan of boiling water and simmer for 20mins or so until you want to eat! Serve with crusty bread and yoghurt-coriander garnish.
