'A sort of ' King Prawn curry with Puy Lentils and Rice

The best dishes as those that are thrown together when you are feeling content and happy, and this dish is one of those.

King Prawn Curry with Lentils and Rice

Put the rice in a large pan of boiling water and cook for as long as the packet tells you. Then rinse the lentils in cold running water and place in boiling water with a vegetable stock cube, and cook for about 15 minutes

For the Curry bit:

500g of prawns (this is a lot of prawns but im greedy and love prawns so just put in as much as you want)
1 x onion
1 x tbsp grated ginger
1 x garlic clove, finely chopped
1 x tsp ground ginger
1 x tsp cumin powder
1 x tsp ground coriander seeds
1 x chilli (we just bought a chili plant! Get one!) 
1 x bunch of roughly chopped coriander
1 x juice of a lime

Fry the onion on a medium heat for a 3 minutes, add the ginger and garlic and cook for a further 3 minutes. Add the ground ginger, cumin, ground coriander and chilli and cook for 3 minutes. Then turn the heat to low, add half the fresh coriander and cook for a further 5 mins. Turn the heat back to medium and add the prawns, cook until they pink all over.

Then, drain the lentils and add them to the prawn curry. Serve with the rice, a sprinkling of fresh corander and a squeeze of lime.
