15 Feb Green lentil Rogan Josh curry
Welcome back to Sandtondiet and to this week’s green lentil rogan josh curry recipe.
It has been raining and quite miserable here and as a result all I have felt like is a nourishing and warm bowl of lentils. This recipe hit the spot! The lentils cooked in the gorgeously fragrant rogan josh curry sauce to make a wonderfully delicious lunch.
However I have to be honest here. There was a bit of cheating with this recipe. For convenience I used a ready-made rogan josh spice mix. If you would like to try making your own spice mix or spice paste then check out this curry paste recipe from Jamie Oliver – https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/vegetable-recipes/easy-homemade-curry-pastes/. Alternatively this spice mix recipe from Swathi’s recipes also looks gorgeous – https://www.indianhealthyrecipes.com/korma-masala-powder.
Lentils are really a great addition your diet. They are packed with fibre, vitamins and minerals and they therefore tick many healthy nutrition boxes.

In conclusion, there is not much else to say about this recipe other than it’s absolutely delicious but above all you have to try it! This recipe for green lentil rogan josh curry is quick and easy and is super scrumptious.
