TO MAKE

 

Dice the onion and chop the potatoes into 2cm pieces. Add them to a large frying pan and Cook at a high temperature with a drizzle of cooking oil and a pinch of smoked salt.

 

grind the spices in a pestle and mortar Cook at a high temperature in the pan with the potato and onion.

 

toss the contents of the frying pan, After 15 minutes, add a handful (60g) of lentils and the diced black garlic cloves. fry for another minute before adding the chopped tomatoes and 250ml of water. Turn the heat down to medium and leave to simmer for 30 minutes.

Chop up the chard and blend the hazelnuts, then add them both to the curry pan once the lentils have softened. Add the coconut milk. then turn the heat right down and let the curry rest for 3-4 minutes. This will give the hazelnuts time to fluff up and add a creaminess to the curry whilst the chard cooks.
