  • Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and red pepper flake and cook for a few minutes.
  • Grind the cumin, coriander and mustard seeds lightly in a pestle and mortar, then add to the pan, along with the turmeric and garam masala, and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the lentils, tomatoes with their juice, coconut milk and broth, then stir to combine. Season with pepper and cook on medium-low for 15-20 minutes, until reduced and thick.
  • If you have time, you can leave it a little longer on very low heat for even more flavor (just stir often and check it doesn't scorch the bottom of the pan). Taste and add more seasoning if desired.
  • Stir in lemon juice and spinach until it wilts.
