The ultimate veggie one-pot wonder! Packed with hearty vegetables, lentils and rice, this hassle-free dish has a spicy kick. We recommend Jalfrezi curry paste, but your preferred curry paste will work just as well! Toasted cashew nuts add crunch and cilantro adds freshness. This is the perfect meat-free midweek meal, guaranteed to satisfy even the biggest meat-eater.
