Lentil curry

Curry is a dish that needs no introduction for any lover of Indian cuisine. It refers to various ingredients – meat, fish, vegetables or cheese – cooked in a sauce. We can deal with many varieties of curry. The difference in their taste is due to a properly matched composition of spices, the so-called masala. The most commonly used are: ginger, turmeric, pepper, salt, cumin, coriander, chili and mustard.

Lentil curry will certainly appeal to lovers of vegetarian cuisine. How to prepare it? The ingredients for this dish are as follows:

  • 250 ml coconut milk,
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil,
  • ½ cup lentils,
  • 250 ml of water,
  • 250 ml tomato puree,
  • 1 onion,
  • 6 dried apricots,
  • 1 tsp peeled ginger,
  • 1 tsp grated turmeric,
  • 1 teaspoon of romaine seeds,
  • ⅓ teaspoon chili,
  • a pinch of salt.

How to make lentil curry step by step? First, we heat coconut oil in a pot. We add cumin seeds and sauté for a short while. Add the diced onion and fry for about 5 minutes. Add water, salt, chilli, lentils, turmeric and ginger. Bring to a boil. Add tomato puree and diced dried apricots. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes. Pour in the coconut milk and cook for 1 minute. Serve the dish with rice and coriander. The whole dish can be additionally sprinkled with lime juice.

Salmon with asparagus

Salmon is a fish that is both tasty and healthy. It contains B vitamins, vitamins A, E, D and minerals such as phosphorus, potassium, calcium, selenium, iron, magnesium, zinc, iodine and fluorine. This fish is also an excellent source of Omega-3 acids. How to prepare it? It can be served with asparagus, which contains large amounts of folic acid, selenium, magnesium, potassium and calcium.

To prepare salmon with asparagus you will need:

  • 500 g of salmon fillet,
  • 1 bunch of asparagus,
  • 1 bunch of dill,
  • 1 lemon,
  • 25 g butter,
  • 2 cloves of garlic.

The first step is to preheat the oven to 230 degrees Celsius. Cut the salmon into portions, put it on a cutting board with the skin down and cut off the skin, moving the knife along the fillet. Rinse the fish, pat it dry, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with juice squeezed from half a lemon. Wash the asparagus, break off the tough ends and put them together with the fish in an ovenproof dish. Add butter, salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon of chopped dill and pressed garlic. Mix and spread this butter on the salmon and asparagus. Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Serve the dish with new potatoes.
