1 glass of red wine

This would have to be my most used dish, a true favorite and so versatile. We have it with nearly all our curries, on warm toast for breakfast, in a freshly baked roll and even with cheese in a sandwich.
There is always some made in my fridge ready to be consumed.
Here is the basic recipe that can be changed to suit yourself and tastes.
1 cup of washed RED LENTILS.
1 can of diced TOMATOES.
1 diced ONION.
2 tablespoons of PATAKS or SHARWOODS CURRY PASTE, always use a hot or medium as the mild is a waste of time. IMHO. Don't use tandoori.
1 cup of WATER.
Now, as the title suggests, this really is EASY DARL.
Put all ingreds into a microwaveable dish, and stir well. Place in microwave on high setting and cook 'til lentils have become mushy, stirring now and then, (every 5 mins) and checking to see if it needs more water. This may take up to 30 minutes. You can't overcook this dish.
Sometimes I also add CORN, PEAS or diced CAPSICUM to it. It's one of those dishes that anything goes. I have even added it to MEAT CURRIES to stretch them out a little more.
I made a very HOT BEEF CURRY and a milder sweet VEGETABLE and MANGO CURRY and served it with pain boiled Basmati rice and Naan bread.
A tip from one of my blogger friends. Put your toilet rolls in the fridge when you are serving a HOT curry. LOL.
Do hope you enjoy this, please let me know.

Yes, and then shake like there's no tomorrow.
Take off lid and place contents into the Quiche
dish. Place some sliced tomato on the top and put
into the oven for 35-45 mins.
This will rise a little and is delish warm from
the oven or served cold with a nice crisp
