Instructions

Start the Lentils
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.

Prep the Veggies
2

Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces. Trim the courgette then slice into rounds about 1cm thick. 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). Drain and rinse the chickpeas.

Toast the Coconut
3

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.

Wilt the Spinach
4

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, pour the spinach mixture along with half the toasted coconut and half the coriander, into the saucepan. Pop a lid on to keep warm.

Cook the Chapatis
5

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.

Serve!
6

Mix the chickpeas into the dal and rewarm over medium heat until the dal is piping hot. Serve the dal in bowls and top with the courgette slices. Finish with a sprinkling of the remaining coconut and coriander and the chapatis on the side. Enjoy!
