1. Rinse lentils and drain well.
Place lentils, stock and turmeric in a large, heavy-based pan. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 mins, or until just tender. Stir occasionally and check the mixture is not sticking.

Stir the onion and spices into the lentil mixture and then add the tomato. Simmer over very low heat for 5 mins, stirring frequently.
