1 TBSP Olive Oil

1 Thumb of ginger

2 Cloves garlic 

2 Green Chilli

1 TSP cumin

1 TSP coriander

Small bunch coriander (seperate leaves from stalks)

1 cup red lentils

2x 400 gms canned tomatoes

500ml Vegetable stock

1 TBSP Tamarind paste

Cook garlic, ginger and chilli until fragrant. Add spices then chopped  coriander stalks.lentils, stock and tomatoes. Bring to the boil and then simmer. Add Tamarind paste and simmer for 20 minutes, or until lentils are tender.  Blend until smooth. Sometimes I don't blend it as I want a chunkier soup!

Chop coriander leaves and add to unsweetened yoghurt and swirl to serve.
