level teaspoon cumin seeds
level teaspoon ground coriander

Chopped coriander

  1. Fry onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent.
  2. Add the spices & get them all warm and toasty.
  3. Add the lentils and stir to coat in the aromatic oil.
  4. Add the stock & tomato and let it simmer (covered) for about 20mins.
