  • 400 g red lentils rinsed
  • 1 white onion diced
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons red curry paste
  • 2 Tablespoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or more for taste.
  • 500 g tomato passata
  • 1890 ml water
  • 2 vegetable stock cubes
  • 400 ml coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoons Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper to taste


  • Add lentils to the large stock pot. Add diced onions, butter, curry paste, curry powder, turmeric, garlic, ginger and cayenne. Stir until well combined.
  • Add tomato passata, water and stock cubes. Stir until lentils are fully covered.
  • Cover and cook on low simmering heat for 20minutes or until lentils are tender. Check periodically to make sure there is enough liquid for your lentils to soak up
  • Stir in coconut milk, salt and pepper.
  • Serve warm with some crusty bread.


The lentils break down quite nicely but if you'd like to puree with an immersion blender you can do so.
