Pumpkin Dahl

Flavoursome and filling, great for a cold day to keep you warm.

Start by boiling the yellow lentils so that they are cooked by the time the rest of the curry is done
~ 1 cup of yellow lentils, cover with boiling water, simmer fr 20-25 minutes until tender
~ strain and set aside

Fry the following in a large pot on medium-high heat:
~ 1 onion, diced
~ 1 tsp ghee
~ 1 tsp coconut oil

After a few minutes, when the onion is soft, add in:
~ 1-2 garlic cloves, diced finely
~ ginger and tumeric root, diced finely (about a thumb sized piece of both)
~ 1/2 Kent pumpkin, diced into 1cm pieces

Cook for round 5 minutes, stirring often. Β When the pumpkin starts to get soft around the edges, add in the spices:
~ 2 tsp garam masala
~ 1 tsp cumin
~ 1 tsp ground tumeric
~ 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
~ 1 tsp curry mix (equal parts mustard seeds, fenugreek & cumin seeds)
~ 1/2 tsp cinnamon
~ 3-5 curry leaves

Stir the mixture around for a couple of minutes until the spices become fragrant
Add the rest of the ingredients one at a time:
~ 1tsp fish sauce
~ 2 cups chicken stock
~ 200g coconut cream
~ juice from 1/4 of a lemon
~ pinch of salt (to taste)
~ 2 tbsp black or white sesame seeds

Bring to the boil and cook for a further 10 minutes on low heat, until the pumpkin is cooked but not too mushy
Lightly push down on a few areas of the curry with a potato masher so some pieces of the pumpkin are squashed down
Add the lentils and keep cooking for a further 5 minutes
