It's recipe time for next weeks #FridayCurryClub so here it is!
The Dhansak is a Parsi dish and Dhan means grain or lentil and sak means to stew so it's a one pot lentil and lamb stew. I like to use aubergine and butternut squash in mine as well as the lentils. If you want to do a veggie version then you can also use some big mushrooms, pumpkin and potatoes with the aubergine and butternut squash. You can add these to the masala instead of the lamb rather then cooking them with the lentils.
Here is the full recipe - if you have any questions then ask away below.

Looking forward to cooking with you all for this special #CurryForChange cook along and I am pleased to say that @Abi - Curry For Change will be joining me for the live steam so you can ask her lots of questions about the charity and how they help some of the poorest communities by cooking curry!

Hey @Sue Geen thanks @linda.hartley yes that would work as would carrots 🥕 suede, parsnip even fennel. The softer veg will break down so I would recommend they go in when the lamb would go in or they will disintegrate in the sauce rather then cooking with the lentils. Does that help?

I’m going to use courgette straight from the garden instead of squash. Might that work for you @Sue Geen

hi @Sue Geen, hope you are well. Maybe sweet potatoes could work? what do you think @Hari Ghotra

Thanks everyone! @dcmorris27 I don't have the book yet, but it is already in my wishlist ;) I'll get it soon. I eat very little meat and also want to try the veggie version @linda.hartley :)
