Lee's Sambhar

Serves: 4 – 6 as a side Vegan

A satisfying South Indian lentil dish, with curry leaves and mustard seeds. We like adding roasted squash, carrot or pumpkin to this dish. For an authentic tang, add a dash of tamarind puree.

Please note: Due to shortages of fresh ingredients some of our products may be made using dry ingredients (chilli powder & dry curry leaves) - this will not affect the flavour of your Curry Packs.

Shelf life & storage: The mix will last for up to 4 weeks in a fridge and for six months in a freezer. Once cooked the food will last for 2 days in a fridge and up to one month in a freezer.

  1. Empty sachet 1 (lentils) and sachet 2 (powdered spices) into a pan with 500ml water, 2 fresh tomatoes and 200g mixed vegetables.
  2. Bring to the boil, cover, and simmer for 10 mins. Adjust water if the mixture is too thick.
  3. In a frying pan, fry sachet 3 (whole spices) in 2 tbsp of oil until the mustard seeds begin to splutter.
  4. Pour this mixture over the lentils and vegetables.
  5. Garnish with lemon juice and serve.
