How to make it

  • 1. Heat the oil over a medium heat and add the onions and celery to soften for about 5 minutes.
  • 2. Add in the garlic and chilli, stir for a minute or two to cook out.
  • 3. Add in the fennel and cumin seeds and cook for a minute or so.
  • 4. Stir in the curry powder, ground coriander and sweet potato and cook, stirring for a few minutes. Mind it doesn't catch and burn.
  • 5. Pour in the stock and bring to a simmer. Once bubbling, add in the lentils, tomato purée and shredded chicken.
  • 6. Simmer for about 30 minutes until the lentils have thickened the soup and the potatoes are soft. Add more water if it gets too thick.
  • 7. Check for seasoning and and some salt and pepper if necessary.
  • 8. If it's too sweet a squeeze of fresh lemon juice would help, as would some freshly chopped coriander leaf.

    This sounds really yummy! Never heard of Groundnut oil before but when I googled it, it says it's the same as Peanut OIl so I'm good to go in that regard. Bookmarked to try. Thanks for sharing!
