4. Heat the oil over a low heat in a pan and add the onion & fry gently for 5 minutes. Add the garlic & cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the paprika, cinnamon, chilli flakes & Garam masala, fry until fragrant, about a minute.

 

5. Peel and cube the butternut tops.

 

6. Add the butternut cubes, lentils & tinned tomatoes to the pan, stir through.

 

7. Season with salt & pepper.  

 

8. Add 1 stock cube to the pan with 1 cup of water, simmer on low for 30 minutes. 

 

9. Add the spinach & cook for a further 5 minutes or until nicely wilted.

 

10. Spoon the curry into the butternut bowls.

 

11. Garnish with a spoonful of yogurt and sprinkle with fresh coriander and serve with fluffy white rice. ENJOY!
