DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oil in a wok or large, deep pan. Lower the heat slightly and add the bay leaf, cloves, peppercorns and onion slices. Fry for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are golden brown, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the diced venison, turmeric, chili powder, garam masala, coriander seeds, cinnamon stick, garlic, ginger and most of the salt, and stir-fry for about 5 minutes over a medium heat.
  • Pour in 3 1/2 cups of water an cover the pan with a lid. Simmer over a low heat for about 35-40 minutes, or until the water has evaporated and the meat is tender.
  • Put the lentils into a pan with the remaining 2 1/2 cups water and boil for about 12-15 minutes, or until the water has almost evaporated and the lentils are soft enough to mash. If the lentils are too thick, add up to 2/3 cup more water to loosen the mixture.
  • When the meat is tender, stir-fry the mixture using a wooden spoon, until some free oil begins to appear on the sides of the pan. Add the cooked lentis to the venison and mix together well.
  • Add the tomatoes, chillies and fresh coriander and serve.
