2.5 g (1/2 tsp) fenugreek seeds, ground

method

1. Put the lentils, pumpkin, doddy, potato, onion, turmeric and salt in a large saucepan, and add enough water to cover it by 3.75cm (1 1/2 in).

2. Bring to the boil and simmer until tender.

3. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further 10 minutes. Pass the lentils and vegetables through a sieve and put aside.

4. Boil the meat in a little water for about 45 minutes until tender. Put aside.

5. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat.

6. Add all the spices and fry for 1 - 2 minutes, stirring constantly, so that they do not stick.

7. If necessary, sprinkle on a few drops of water to prevent the spices from burning.

8. Add the lentils and lamb and simmer on a low heat for about 30 minutes. (The lentils should be quite thick.)
