This hearty soup, very warming for winter days, is best made the day befoer to allow the flavour of the spices to infused

"This was easy to make. I stayed with the recipe for spices. In the end, I added 500 ml (2 cups) of chicken broth to change it from a stew to a soup. The alternative would be to use it on top of Basmati rice as a sauce."

I changed a couple of the ingredients as to what I had in the fridge, and made it a bit thicker so that my 15 month old twins could eat it. Went down a treat! photo by Madmumlee Madmumlee

Simple, inexpensive and delicious. I added a couple of red peppers in for extra kick. Feel free to leave out the potatoes.

A good, hearty soup. To simplify, I've tried it with canned, diced potatoes insead of the grated potoates (19oz 540ml size). Still good. With smallish red lentils, 100g is equivalent to approx 2/3 cup.
