I can't remember where I originally found this recipe, but I finally decided to give it a try. As with most recipes I try for the first time, it's tweaked a bit. I just can't help myself - LOL ;-) It looks like a lot of prep work but it won't seem like it once you are thoroughly enjoying this complete meal! When ready to serve, place over a bed of rice and sliced pita bread pieces for scooping on the side. If you do happen to have leftovers, this dish tastes even better reheated the next day!


  • 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. crushed garlic
  • 2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp. of water
  • 1 1/4 cups dried lentils
  • 1/4 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 5 cups water
  • 4 oz. green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 4 oz. collard greens, inner stems removed and discarded, finely chopped
  • 1 large celery rib, sliced
  • 3/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • salt, to taste


Combine the ginger, garlic, coriander, and the 1 teaspoon ground cumin in a small bowl and stir in the 1/4 cup of water to make a paste.


Heat olive oil in a small skillet. Add the 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin and shallot and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add the bowl of spice paste and let cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and the 1 tablespoon of water, cook until thick, about 1 minute, and set aside.

Combine the lentils, turmeric, and the 5 cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes, until the lentils are barely tender.

Add the green beans, collard greens, celery, the 3/4 cup cilantro, and the cayenne, stir and season with salt. Cook until the lentils and vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.

Add the cooked spice paste that was set aside and the remaining cilantro, stir, and simmer for an additional 5 minutes and serve.

Spicy and delicious! I could make this the main course and, along with a good salad and good bread, be very happy. This is good over rice, too.


  • 2 (10 oz.) pkgs. frozen green peas
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts
  • 2 tsp. freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tsp. curry
  • 1/4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. coriander
  • 2 tsp. flour
  • 1/2 cup milk


Rinse peas under running water to separate. Drain and reserve.

Fry bacon in 10 inch skillet until crisp. Remove and drain, crumble and reserve. Cook the onion, garlic, peanuts and ginger in the bacon fat over medium heat until the onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add the spices and saute 1 minute. Stir in flour and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mix is bubbly.

Increase the heat and stir in the milk, add the peas, and heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer until heated through. Sprinkle with the reserved bacon to garnish.

Curry that can be eaten with rice or roti. Wash potatoes and boil in water. When cooked remove peel and slice. Heat oil and fry. When cooked, drain on paper towel and keep aside.

Excellent to scoop up with pita bread or serve over rice and even more tasty reheated the next day.

A curry you can eat with rice. Healthy meal. Heat a shallow pan and add oil. When heated, fry the onion then add the mustard seeds and jeera.

This recipe is wonderful and freezes really well! Great if you want to feed a crowd of people without too much fuss, time, or money. I make this and freeze it for lunches.

Heat the oil in a wok or solid based frying pan and fry the onion for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the cubed potatoes; cover and cook to 3-4 minutes. Add the okra, and stir fry for 2 minutes.
