    Serves: 6


    300g red split lentils
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    1 onion, halved and sliced
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    15g peeled fresh root ginger, finely chopped
    1 tsp ground turmeric
    ½ tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Garam Masala
    400ml can reduced fat coconut milk
    1 lime, juice
    235g pack ready-washed spinach 


    1. Rinse the lentils in several changes of cold water. Drain. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat and fry the onion, garlic and ginger for 8-10 minutes, stirring regularly, until golden. Scoop out one-third of the onion mixture and set aside.

    3. Stir in the lime juice and spinach, and cook for a final 3-4 minutes. Spoon over the reserved onions to serve.
