My BFF cooked me one of her fave dinners last night, it was super yum, despite the 50 shades of beige (her spinach had died apparently, hence the lack of green).

1) place a pan with water on the hob and add a cup of red lentils, bring to the boil and simmer and stir for 20 mins, add water if needs be.

2) in a separate pan fry a chopped green chilli, 1 small onion, 1 garlic clove, 2 fresh chopped tomatoes, chopped ginger, generous tsp of garam masala, 1/4 can of solid coconut cream, 1 tsp of turmeric, a shake of mustard seeds, cumin seeds, ground fenugreek, salt and pepper.

3) cook rice – 1 cup boiling water to 1/2 cup white rice, bring to boil then turn to simmer with a lid on for 10 mins

4) add the lentils to the spice pan and cook for a further 10-15mins until at desired soft consistency. (Add spinach if yours hasn’t gone manky!)

5) serve with a flatbread and paneer, we used some ready flavoured tikka paneer by Sharwoods.

Amy has Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome which means her joints don’t always do what they’re told. She doesn’t let that stop her doing normal stuff theough – she uses these jazzy knives to chop stuff, aren’t they cool? Despite being in a wheelchair she lives a normal life – even if the world (or too much vino) doesn’t really help. She recently wrote a hilarious article about clubbing in a wheelchair. You can read more about her adventures in her fabulous blog.
