  1. Combine lentils with 700ml of water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Once the lentils have simmered for 10 minutes, stir in the cooked onion along with the rice, TVP mince, stock granules, curry powder, cumin, parsley flakes and 600ml of water. Return to the boil over high heat, then remove from the heat, cover and let stand for 20 minutes. Do not remove the lid during this time. After 20 minutes, remove the lid and stir before serving.

Am looking forward to eating this tonight, when I've made it. But - onion is mentioned in the recipe but not in the list of ingredients. I'm going to go with my own ideas today, but I would like to know what the original recipe should have, please? Later...I made the recipe and am very pleased. Especially like the way it's so easy and so tasty! I used 2 good sized onions. I would use only 2 tsp stock granules next time because I don't like very much salt. There certainly will be a next time, though! - 14 Oct 2012
