We love this curry for so many reasons! It’s super quick and easy to make, full of authentic flavours and packed full of veggies. Plus it’s great to make ahead of time and the flavours are even better the next day.

How do I make it ?
Select All
Step 1
Heat a dash of oil in a medium sized lidded pan over low heat. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and sauté until the onion softens. Add the Gregg’s Whole Cumin Seeds and Gregg’s Ground Coriander and cook for a further minute to allow the spices to ‘cook out’.
Step 2
Add the Wattie’s Crushed and Sieved Tomatoes, drained Wattie’s Lentils and sugar if using. Stir and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, covering the pan if the sauce is reducing too much. Stir occasionally to avoid the lentils sticking to the base of the pan.
Step 3
Add the baby spinach leaves and coconut milk and continue cooking until the spinach wilts and sauce is hot. Season to taste. Garnish with coriander, if wished.
Step 4
Serve with basmati rice, lemon wedges and poppadoms if wished.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Adding the sugar helps to reduce the acidity of the tomatoes and draw out the flavours.
Leftover coconut milk will keep in the fridge for 2–3 days or freeze in an airtight container for use at a later date.
Swap It Out
  • Replace the Wattie’s Crushed and Sieved Tomatoes with Wattie’s Chopped Tomatoes.
  • If you don’t have Gregg's Cumin or Gregg's Coriander, you can replace with 1 Tbsp Gregg's Curry Powder.
  • Try spinach instead of frozen peas.
  • You can also try replacing Wattie's Lentils with Wattie's Chickpeas.
  • Replace the coconut cream with fresh cream or natural unsweetened Greek yoghurt but make sure this is added at the end of cooking to avoid the sauce curdling.
