  1. Put your lentils, vegetable stock, coriander springs, cornflour, tomato paste and all of your spices and seeds in the slow cooker and mix everything together (do not add your yoghurt or your fresh coriander leaves).

  2. Cook the lentil curry on high for 4 hours.

  3. If you find that the lentils are dry once they're cooked, add 1 cup of water and stir it through.

  4. Add you coriander leaves and stir through. Then season to taste with salt and pepper.

  5. Feel free to garnish your curry with yoghurt before serving. Then you can serve with rice, flatbreads or any other side that you like.

Recipe Notes

  • Rice, parathas, roti and naan are beautiful sides for this curry.
  • If you're vegan and want to garnish the dish with yoghurt, use vegan youghurt.
  • Green whole lentils work wonderfully for this recipe. Avoid split lentils and red lentils, they will overcook and go mushy.
  • If you want to, you may soak the lentils before cooking them if you wish. The link to this post and this post will give some information as to why you may want to.
  • If you find that the lentils are dry once they have been cooked, then add 1 cup of water to add some moisture to the curry.
