    2 tsp rapeseed or vegetable oil
    100g Cooks’ Ingredients Frozen Diced Onion
    1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
    100g Cooks’ Ingredients Tikka Curry Paste
    ½ x 28g pack coriander, stalks finely chopped
    400g can lentils, drained and rinsed
    100ml reduced fat coconut milk (shake the can well before opening)

Stir the beans into the lentils and simmer while you peel and halve the eggs. Add the eggs to the sauce. Finish with the coriander leaves, chilli and reserved coconut milk. Tasty with naan or plain rice.
