Servings 4 people


  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 tin chickpeas drained
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp mild curry powder use less for hotter powders
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 cup dairy free yoghurt
  • 200 ml water
  • 2 cups mixed veg I used frozen veg
  • 2 cups cooked lentils


  • Add 2 tbsp of oil to a large pan and put on a low-medium heat.
    Add the onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes to soften.
    Add the curry powder and ginger and stir in. Let the spices fry with the onion and garlic to bring out the flavours.
    Add the chickpeas, lentils and chopped tomatoes. Stir in so everything is covered in the curry sauce. Pour in the water and simmer for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
    Add the yoghurt and stir in, simmer for a few minutes and it's ready to serve.Serve with rice and a spoonful of yoghurt on top of the curry.



Tip: I used a lot of curry powder but it was mild. If using a hotter powder you may want to use less. Adding the yoghurt gives the curry a creamy taste and adds to the flavours. I cooked the lentils before adding them to the curry.
