I make all kinds of curries on a weekly basis. There's often nothing better than sitting down to a warm and hearty curry of an evening, particularly in the colder months. What's more, curries are incredibly practical. Once you've accumulated a selection of spices, you can whip up a delicious curry with whatever vegetables you like. To give your curry a bit of substance, simply add red lentils. Not only will they give your curry a wonderfully creamy texture, but they are also an excellent source of plant protein. This curry was so good that I made it again just three days after trialling it.
