1

Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve. Boil the water (see ingredients for amount) in a large saucepan, add the stock pot and stir to dissolve. Pour in the coconut milk and add the lentils. Reduce to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally until the lentils are soft, then remove from the heat, 15-20 mins.

Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Peel and grate the ginger and garlic (or use a garlic press). Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed and finely chop. Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).

Pop a frying pan on medium heat (no oil) and add the desiccated coconut. Toast until golden, 4-5 mins, shaking the pan. TIP: Watch it like a hawk as it can burn easily. Remove from the pan and set aside. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper.

Put the now empty frying pan back on medium heat with a splash of oil and add the onion. Cook until soft, 4 mins. Stir in the ginger, garlic, curry powder and as much chilli as you dare. Cook for 1-2 mins. Stir in the spinach a handful at a time until wilted, then remove from the heat. When the lentils are ready, stir in the spinach mixture along with half the toasted coconut and half the coriander. Pop a lid on to keep warm.

Wipe out the now empty frying pan again and put on high heat (no oil). When really hot, fry each tortilla until dark spots begin to appear, about 1 minute each side. Remove to a plate and keep warm with foil while you fry the remaining tortillas.
