This Indian curry is one of my favourite recipes to eat any time of the year. It is my all-time favourite comfort food, this dish is hearty, gooey and oh-so-
And let’s not forget this Indian curry is really really healthy! It’s a meal packed with veggies, rich in vitamins and minerals. Sweet potato is rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene and fresh spinach is packed with iron, calcium, magnesium and vitamins A, C, E, and K. Red lentils are high in protein and an excellent source of fiber. So high five for your brain!
This Indian curry is really easy to make, a one-pot recipe, takes little time and it’s vegetarian, gluten free, and if you don’t add the feta it’s also dairy free. How much better can it get! Well, served with some naan or papadum, and you have a winner for dinner! 😉
