MINUTES 1-5 For the sambar, heat the oil in a large pan, set over a medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook until softened and turning brown. Then add the garlic, grated ginger and coconut, and stir to combine. Heat through till fragrant.

MINUTES 6-8 Add the turmeric, curry powder/garam masala, and tamarind. Cook for 1 minute before adding the lentils, stock and coconut milk and bringing the mixture to the boil.

MINUTES 9-40 Reduce the heat, add the cinnamon stick and leave to simmer for 30 minutes. Once the lentils have softened, pour over the lime juice, stir, and remove from the heat.

While the sambar is simmering, prepare the spiced oil. Heat the oil in a small frying pan, set over a low heat. Add the onion and fry for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden. Stir in the cumin seeds, mustard seeds and chilli. Cook for a few minutes until you hear the mustard seeds pop; then remove from the heat.

Spoon the spiced oil over the sambar. Serve alongside flatbread, chapatti or naan, with a wedge of lime and a dollop of yoghurt.
