For The Spiced Yogurt:

  • 6 tbsp fat-free natural Greek yogurt
  • A pinch of turmeric
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed

Method

  • Put the onion, carrot, chilli, panch phoran spices, 3 tbsp stock and some seasoning into a large non-stick pan over a low heat. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Uncover the pan and stir in the paprika and tomato purée, followed by the rest of the stock, the lentils and the tomatoes.
