Lentil and Potato Curry

25 MIN
45 MIN



  1. In a large saucepan, brown the onion in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic and garam masala and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients except for the cilantro and bring to boil. Simmer gently, uncovered, for about 35 minutes or until the lentils are tender. Adjust the seasoning. Serve over basmati rice and garnish with cilantro. 


You can replace the coconut milk with 398 mL (14 oz) of diced tomatoes. However, you will need to add about 125 ml (1/2 cup) of water.


  1. It's a bit hard to rate this recipe. I think if you follow the instructions exactly as stated, you're going to get a pretty mediocre result. I added extra spices (paprika, turmeric, chili flakes) along with a great curry seasoning and bloomed it in olive oild before adding the onions. I also added ginger and used a nice vegetable broth. On top of this, I only had red let's on hand so that's what I used. With these modifications the recipe was delicious.

  2. I’m with Catherine B. Not sure where all the good ratings came from. The dish was ok but very blah. I wouldn’t make this again.

  3. Not great. Not sure where the good ratings came from. I followed this recipe exactly, I used garam masala l, not curry powder, and coconut milk, not tomatoes. Tasted bland. I had to add curry paste to save it.

  4. Very delicious, and filling too! Will make this again!

  5. My family loved this dish so delicious and easy to put together. Will definitely make again. Made it with tomatoes next time will try with coconut milk.

  6. Can you freeze this receipe

  7. My husband and I really liked this recipe. So easy to make and so healthy. The flavour has a slight kick yet everything is balanced.

  8. I added some carrots too. Great recipe!

  9. Absolutely delicious!!

  10. Received two enthusiastic thumbs up from husband and daughter who commented: "This is actually really good!"
