Ingredients

75 g red lentils
1 leek
4 chillies, finely chopped
4 curry leaves
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tsp of mustard seeds
1 mango
2 tomatoes
½ tsp of chilli powder
1 tsp of coriander, ground
450g chicken breast, boned, skinned & cubed
2 tbsp of coriander, fresh, chopped

Method

1. Place the lentils in a saucepan and add enough water to just cover. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes, until soft but not mushy. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Add the finely sliced leek, chilli, curry leaves and mustard seeds and cook over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes.

3. Add the diced mango and tomatoes, ground coriander and chicken and fry for 8 - 10 minutes.

4. Add the cooked lentils and cook for a further 2 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

5. Garnish with fresh coriander before serving. Basmati rice or naan bread would be good accompaniments.
