Vegetarian cooking is the mainstay of Indian cuisine, with dhaal baht (that’s lentils and rice) a particular staple. We’ve added orange sweet potatoes to that traditional marriage, to make a curry with an edge of sweetness that perfectly balances all that wonderful spice.
Add the vegetable oil to a large saucepan and heat up. Then add the mustard seeds and fry until they just start popping. Add the ginger, garlic, curry powder and cayenne and fry for half a minute. Add the tomatoes, lentils, salt and water. Turn heat down low, pop the lid on and allow lentils to simmer for 15 minutes.
Next up, add the sweet potatoes and cook for a further 20-25 minutes until soft. Serve on fluffy basmati rice and scatter generously with chopped coriander.
