  • Small knob ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 2 tbsp butter chicken spice paste
  • 2 x 250 g pouches precooked Beluga lentils
  • 100 g bag baby spinach leaves
  • 1 x 400 g can coconut milk(use Light Coconut milk if preferred)
  • 3 tbsp Philadelphia Light
  • 2 x 250 g packet microwavable Basmati rice
  • 1 lime, cut into quarters, to serve
  • Handful coriander leaves, leaves picked, to serve
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds, to serve (optional)


  • Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan and cook the onion until beginning to turn golden, then stir in garlic, ginger and curry paste.
  • Cook for a minute or two before adding the lentils, Philadelphia Light and coconut milk. Bring to a simmer, taking care to stir thoroughly so the Philadelphia incorporates evenly.
