Our 30 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Fry the veg

    Fry the onion until golden (around 6-8 mins). While this is cooking, peel and cut the butternut squash

    Add the squash and fry for 3 mins. 

  • 2.

    Add the lentils

    Add the Spicy Garlic & Coconut paste to the pan and mix well.

    Stir in the red lentils and the Dhal Spice Mix.

    Add the coconut milk and the Ginger Lentil Stock pot along with 200ml of water and bring to the boil. Cover with a lid, turn the heat down and let it simmer for 10 mins.

  • 3.

    Finishing touches

    Next, stir in the the spinach and then put the lid back on and cook for 5 more mins. If it gets too dry, add a splash more water so the lentils can cook without sticking to the bottom.

    Meanwhile, toast your naan bread (if having). 

  • 4.


    When the lentils are tender and the squash is soft, serve the curry with yoghurt on top (optional), naan bread on the side and a squeeze of lime.

Cheap and easy to make. Peeling and dicing the butternut squash the most time consuming part. Good winter warmer.

Absolutely delicious and as a bonus it’s vegan! Definitely one to get again

Tasty, was surprised how nice this is i’m not a massive fan of cooking coconut based recipes - would order again

Dean - Nov 18, 2019

Definitely not my favourite. Lacking in taste and I had to season it. I cooked a chicken to go with it. Wouldn't order this one again :(

Surprisingly tasty. I don’t usually cook vegetarian meals but we all really enjoyed it. Next time I’d cut the spinach leaves into smaller pieces though as my daughter didn’t like “eating leaves”!!

Michelle - Oct 22, 2019

Gave this one for my mum to try first time and she is a skeptic. She says is wonderful and now wants to sign up!

Tasty - enjoyed it. I didn’t add the coriander as suggested but I think this would have lifted the dish so will do that next time.

sandie - Oct 13, 2019

A delicious and colourful recipe that even the meat eaters in the family enjoyed.

Karina - Oct 13, 2019


Jackie - Oct 12, 2019

Nice level of heat and very tasty

Olivia - Oct 12, 2019

It was a lovely creamy curry which was a change from our normal curry. It has a medium heat rating but I would say it was a very mild curry - even suitable for my kids. I would try it again.

Marc - Oct 09, 2019

This one is a keeper!

Torill - Oct 09, 2019

Was so tasty and easy to cook

Angela - Oct 08, 2019

Was a bit dubious but really enjoyed, might try it with sweet potatoes next time

Lynn - Oct 08, 2019

Maybe needs longer cooking and more liquid as squash and lentils didn’t seem cooked enough, but very nice curry with gentle heat
