Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Fragrant Vegetable Sambar With Coconut Yoghurt

Boil a kettle

Peel and roughly slice the brown onion[s]

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the sliced onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 4-5 min or until beginning to soften

2 Fragrant Vegetable Sambar With Coconut Yoghurt

While the onion softens, dissolve the Knorr vegetable stock cube[s] in 600ml [1.1L] boiled water

Chop the tomatoes roughly

Chop the green beans roughly

3 Fragrant Vegetable Sambar With Coconut Yoghurt

Once the onion is beginning to soften, add the garam masala, ground fenugreek, ground turmeric and cayenne pepper (can't handle the heat? Go easy!)

Add the garlic & ginger paste and cook for 1-2 min further or until fragrant

Tip: Add a splash more vegetable oil if your pan is looking a little dry!

4 Fragrant Vegetable Sambar With Coconut Yoghurt

Rinse the red lentils in a sieve under the cold tap

Once fragrant, add the lentils, stock and tamarind paste to the pan with the onion

Give everything a good mix up and bring to the boil over a high heat

5 Fragrant Vegetable Sambar With Coconut Yoghurt

Add the chopped green beans and tomatoes to the pan and cook for 15-20 min, stirring occasionally, until everything is tender – this is your fragrant vegetable sambar

Tip: Add a splash more water if the sambar is looking a little dry!

6 Fragrant Vegetable Sambar With Coconut Yoghurt

Meanwhile, add the basmati rice and 250ml [500ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-12 min or until all the water has been absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

7 Fragrant Vegetable Sambar With Coconut Yoghurt

While the rice is cooking, pick the coriander leaves from their stalks and set aside for garnish

Chop the coriander stalks finely

Once cooked, stir the chopped coriander stalks through the fragrant vegetable sambar
