Jain Bengal Gram Curry

24 Jan




Another of Anjam’s recipes, a vegetarian Jain one,  promised to be simple and quick.  Which it is, if you remember to soak the lentils well in advance.  Which fortunately we had.

Asafoetida and cumin were fried briefly and the lentils added with enough water to cover. Turmeric, red chilli powder and ground coriander were added and left to bubble away for 15 minutes with some garam masala and yoghurt thrown in at the end.

Mrs M returned from yoga to help finish off the ritual she had started earlier.

Definitely quick and easy and pretty tasty too.  More of a side dish than a main if you ask me,  but pretty good. As usual the suggested portions for 45 were a good amount to feed the pair of us, so no leftovers for tomorrow! Mrs M awarded 7.5 out of 10.
