Lentil Curry Balls with a creamy Tomato Curry Coconut Sauce
This recipe is made from a strong craving I had. I really felt like Indian food, but not like always- to make something with spinach or daal. Not that I am not into daal and palak paneer anymore, but this time I wanted to try something different. This recipe has also been created in a way that we were able to create other dishes from it. That means that we used to Lentil Balls for a super nice Lentil Balls and hummus Sandwich the next day.
If you are anything like us – food prep is all around being creative with leftovers, rather than cooking the same dish for a whole week. So these lentil balls are perfect for this use. Especially because properly cooled and packaged, they are easily usable for at least 4 days.
Hope you enjoy this little experiment. Especially the meat eaters beneath us: let us know what you think!
How you do it:
- Start with cooking your lentils by heating a cup of water with some salt and let the lentils simmer in it for around 20-30 minutes.
- Heat a pan with coconut oil and fry some garlic and small cubes of mushrooms in it.
- When the lentils are soft and the water removed, add the minced spring onions, mushrooms & garlic, seeds, and herbs and combine everything properly. Add some whole grain flour until you get a smooth, easy to roll mass.
- Take a spoon and measure the balls with it, rolling them between your hands until you are satisfied with their look 😉
- Heat coconut oil in a pan and bake them until they get golden brown and nice.
Creamy Coconut Tomato sauce
- Heat some coconut oil in a pan.
- Cut the onions and garlic into small cubes and put them in the pot on medium heat. Cook them until they get soft and smooth.
- Add the spices and heat them up, while stirring. After they are hot, add the tomatoes and the coconut milk.
- Stir until everything is well combined, add the salt and the black pepper as well as a small pinch of sugar and season after preference.
- Let this simmer for around 10 minutes on low heat to get a really nice and tangy sauce.
