- 2-3 cups of red lentils
- 1 onion
- 1 clove of garlic
- Small stick of cinnamon (not powdered)
- Dash of chilli powder
- Fresh coriander
- Oil for frying (Groundnut preferably)
Wash the lentils and remove any impurities. Put the lentils in a pot with water, bring to the boil and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Once finished, drain, mash to a creamy consistency and set aside. Chop the onions and garlic finely. Fry the cinnamon bark and onions in some oil until golden, then add the garlic and fry for a minute longer. Add the lentils and fry. Then add the chilli powder and salt & pepper to taste. At the end, mix in some roughly chopped fresh coriander leaf.
