Healthy Vegetarian Recipes - Lentil Curry

Updated on October 23, 2014

My Favorite Lentil Curry Recipe

This healthy Indian lentil curry recipe makes the best curried lentils I have tasted!

It's an easy vegetarian curry, or lentil dhal recipe, which is one of the best vegetarian curries I make and one of my favorite Indian lentil recipes ever. It's an authentic tasting Indian dish which is easy to make, cheap, comforting and healthy too!

I just love cooking Indian food, especially curry, and although there are lots of variations among the different lentil curry recipes, this, in my opinion, is the nicest of all my vegetarian curry recipes and most definitely the dhal recipe I make most often.

I make this easy and healthy curry the day before I want it and then the flavours infuse brilliantly making the tastiest curried lentils ever.

The Ingredients You Will Need To Make This Lentil Curry, Or Dal

This vegetarian curry is easy to make and has just a few basic ingredients making it a cheap, healthy, nourishing and yet flavorful, meal that has become a firm favourite in our house!

When cooking this lentil curry, or, lentil dahl I use equal amounts of four different types of lentils which I think gives this Indian curried lentils dish a much nicer texture.

I like to use mung beans, split red lentils, split yellow lentils and green lentils but you can easily substitute any one of them for a different type of lentil if that's what you have in your store cupboard. Just make sure that the lentils are well washed and those that need to be soaked are soaked overnight.

I know that if you are not used to cooking Indian food that it could perhaps be seen as a little bit daunting but this lentil curry recipe really is simple and straightforward, and uses ingredients that you should have no problems getting hold of. I really do recommend that you try it out.

Remember that there are no hard and fast rules in cooking so try out one of the variations and adjust it to your taste heat wise, and remember to come back and let me know how it went if you do decide to try your hand at this every day Indian dish.

The ingredients for this lentil curry recipe should make enough for 3 to 4 people, served with either basmati rice and/or naan bread, and, as a tangy chutney accompaniment to this vegetarian curry why not try my Easy Mango Chutney Recipe.

How Do You Rate This Vegetarian Curry?

5 stars from 3 ratings of Lentil Curry

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Mung beans, soaked overnight
  • 1/3 cup Split red lentils, washed
  • 1/3 cup Split yellow lentils, washed
  • 1/3 cup Green lentils, washed
  • 1 tsp Fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 clove Garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 Green chilli, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbs Chopped tinned tomatoes, plus 1 tbs of the juice
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 2 tsp Garam masala
  • 1 cup Coriander (cilantro), chopped
  • Plain yoghurt or creme fraiche

Don't add too much water at first when cooking the curried lentils

***It's important that you do not add too much water at first as this might make your lentils go 'mushy' and lose the texture, it is easier to add more water if you need it!***

Well, I dont know about you but my knife skills are not all that great, especially when I cant see through the tears when I am chopping onions! So, this mini chopper is one of my favourite bits of kitchen equipment when a recipe calls for things to be finely chopped!

 

To make this healthy lentil dahl recipe just follow these easy instructions

  1. First of all wash the lentils and put them into the saucepan. Cover with boiling water to about ½ inch above the lentils. Bring to the boil and spoon away any ‘scum’ that rises to the surface.
  2. Season and reduce the heat to a simmer and add the turmeric, stir well and partly cover with a lid and simmer for between 30-40 mins stirring occasionally and adding more water if necessary. When the lentils are ‘just’ cooked turn off the heat and leave them partially covered.
  3. While the lentils are cooking put 2 tsp oil in a small frying pan and fry the onions for about 1 minute before adding the chopped garlic. Fry until lightly golden then, if you have the mini chopper, whizz together the tomatoes and juice and add to the onion and garlic mix together with the ginger and chilli. Fry this until it resembles a dry, shiny paste.
  4. Add the paste and the garam masala to the cooling lentils and stir well. At this stage I usually leave the lentil curry until the next day to allow the flavours to develop, but you could add the finishing touches now if you don't want to do that.
  5. When you are ready to eat, gently reheat the lentil curry and roughly chop a handful of fresh cilantro (coriander). If you prefer your lentil curry to be a little bit creamier add a tablespoon of yoghurt or creme fraiche with most of the cilantro to the hot lentils and stir well then transfer to a warm dish and garnish with the rest of the cilantro and serve the curried lentils straight away with either boiled basmati rice or naan bread.

Vary This Lentil Curry Recipe Just By Adding An Extra Ingredient

Make potato lentil curry, eggplant lentil curry or lentil spinach curry.

I have varied this recipe for lentil curry by adding a few small, cooked new potatoes and leaving them in the curry overnight, by griddling baby eggplants (aubergines) and adding them to the lentil curry whilst it is reheating or by adding cooked spinach to the lentil curry whilst reheating to make a yummy lentil dahl with spinach, or how about trying a sweet potato and lentil curry. All taste fantastic!

Red Lentil And Sweet Potato Curry

This curry made with red lentils and sweet potato makes an excellent mid week dinner, the flavours are really nice though those spice fiends among you may want to increase the amount of chilli and garam masala slightly. I have also added cardomom seeds and or cumin in the past which gives it a nice, fragrant flavour.

The curried red lentil dahl could also be made with tinned lentils if you want to reduce the cooking time even further.

The thing is, just experiment! If you like a certain spice or ingredient more than others then try substituting it.

  • Prep time: 5 min
  • Cook time: 25 min
  • Ready in: 30 min
  • Yields: 2

Instructions

  1. Gently fry the onions, garlic, chilli and ginger in the oil over a low/medium heat for about 4-5 minutes stirring all the time to make sure that the garlic doesn't burn.
  2. Add the turmeric and garam masala and stir into the onions and spices until covered.
  3. Transfer the mix to a saucepan and add the lentils, stock and tomatoes bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occaisionally.
  4. Add the sweet potato and cook for about anouther 10 to 12 minutes until tender.
  5. The red lentil curry is now ready to serve but is even better if made in advance to this stage and reheated when you are ready to eat.
  6. Before serving heat through, season and stir in the chopped coriander.
  7. Serve with warm naan bread.
  8. As a variation you can try substuting the coriander with spinach, or, how about using butternut squash instead of the sweet potato?
  9. If you do use butternut squash I would increase the cooking time slightly until it is nice and tender.

Cheats Quick And Easy Lentil Curry (With Spinach) - When you don't have time to make the lentil curry from scratch...

Lets face it, we don't always have the time to make our meals from scratch all of the time. When we get in from work, sometimes all we want to do is relax and not spend hours in the kitchen. In that case we want something that will take less than half an hour to cook and be on the table, ready to eat.

This quick and easy lentil curry should take less than 30 minutes to prepare using store cupboard ingredients, and still has a great taste.

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions until they have softened. Add the garlic and continue frying for a further 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Now stir in the curry paste, stir well and fry for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add the canned tomatoes and lentils together with the stock and bring to the boil.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  5. Now add the spinach, stir and gently heat through. When the spinach is heated through remove the pan from the heat and stir in most of the chopped coriander.
  6. Garnish the curry with the rest of the coriander and serve with warm naan bread.

Ingredients

  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • crushed and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons curry paste (I use the balti curry paste)
  • 400 g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 400 g can green lentils (drained)
  • 400 g can spinach (drained) or use the equivalent in frozen spinach
  • 150 ml vegetable stock
  • 20 g chopped coriander

Simple One Pot Red Lentil Curry Recipe

This red lentil curry is really easy to make in just one pot!

Adjust the spices to your taste, I like things quite spicy so perhaps would more chilli and curry powder, but it all depends on how you like it.

I like to add some coriander or yoghurt at the end of cooking but if you don't like them, or don't have any, its ok.

Cook Time

Prep Time: 5 mins

Total Time: less than 30 mins

Serves: 3 to 4

Ingredients

  • 1 onion
  • chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • crushed
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons curry powder - to your taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 150 g red lentils
  • About 3/4 litre vegetable stock
  • About 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
  • A handful of chopped coriander - optional
  • Tablespoon of plain yoghurt - optional

Instructions

  1. Rinse the lentils well.
  2. Heat the oil, over a medium heat, in a large Nonstick Saucepan and fry the unions until they are soft and start to go brown.
  3. Add the garlic and spices to the onions in the pan and stir together, then add the lentils and about 600ml of the stock (the rest of the stock may be required if the lentil curry starts to get a bit dry in the cooking).
  4. Turn up the heat and bring the stock to the boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook for about 30 minutes until the lentils are tender, adding the rest of the stock a little at a time if the curried lentils start to get dry.
  5. Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped coriander and/or yoghurt if using, spoon into warmed bowls and serve with warm nan bread.

Green Lentil Curry - This green lentil and vegetable curry makes a satisfying mid week supper for 4

As ever, this lentil curry recipe can be made ahead and re heated when you are ready to eat

If you can't get savoy cabbage, or don't like it, then try using kale instead. I find kale to be slightly more bitter than the cabbage but it does work well in this dish.

Ingredients

  • Thumb sized piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 small shallot very finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 1 1/4 cups dried green lentils
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • A good handful chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 100 g green beans
  • 100 g savoy cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • About 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Peel and grate the ginger finely and grind the garlic clove to a paste then, in a small jug or bowl, mix them together with the coriander, cumin and about 1/4 cup of water so that you have something resembling a paste.
  2. Chop the beans into lengths of about 3/4", tinly slice the carrot and finely chop the savoy cabbage.
  3. Place the lentils in a saucepan together with about 1 1/4 liters of water, add the turmeric and bring to the boil. Partially cover with the lid and simmer gently for 20 minutes, until the lentils are almost, but not quite, tender. Now add the beans, savoy cabbage, carrot, cayenne and 3/4 of the chopped cilantro, then season with salt. Cook for a further 15 minutes until the lentils and vegetables become tender.
  4. While the lentils are cooking, heat the oil in a small pan and add the cumin seeds and briefly cook (about 5 to 10 seconds) over a high heat until they just begin to sizzle. Next add the shallot, stir and fry for about 1 minute until golden brown. Add the spice paste,stir, and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, at this stage most of the liquid should have evaporated.
  5. Mix the tomato puree with a tablespoon of water and stir into the shallot and spice mixture and continue cooking, stirring, for another 2 minutes.
  6. Add the cooked spice paste and the rest of the cilantro to the cooked lentils and vegetables, stir well and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  7. Serve the vegetable and green lentil curry with either naan bread or plain basmati rice.

Lentils, do you love them or hate them?

I have to confess that before I made this vegetarian lentil curry, or lentil dal, I had never tried any vegetarian lentil recipes before, I always thought that lentils were a bland and boring ingredient to cook with, in fact I very rarely cooked meatless recipes at all, I certainly didn't know how to cook dhal.

I now hold my hands up and admit that I was wrong! I think that dal curry made from lentils is great because lentils are good at absorbing the different flavors of the ingredients and spices, and this lentil curry recipe is one of the best lentil recipes ever.

But what is your opinion of lentils?

Do you like lentils as an ingredient when you are cooking?

      I really enjoyed your lens and enjoyed learning about how healthy lentils are. I don't cook but I thought it was so interesting how just adding an extra ingredient can change the whole dish!

      Yum! I make lentil curry quite a lot, but the flavour never turns out quite right. I'll definitely be trying this.

      I've included this lens as a featured lens on my 'The Beauty Balm' lens.

      Do you possibly have any other vegitarian/vegan lenses?

      This recipe looks wonderful. I love Indian food, and there's no Indian restaurant where I live, so I need to learn to make my own. Lentil Dal is one of my favorites. Thanks!

      Lentils is a food that I never liked much and I'm trying to find recipes which would make them seem more "promising" . Your lentil curry sounds interesting and I will definitely try it!

      Fabulous looking recipe-- and I absolutely agree with you about finishing off with cilantro. It makes it. Also- thank you for the tip about making it the day ahead, so the flavor has time to really develop. Great Lens!
