1. Heat a large saucepan with oil over medium heat. Chop and add onion, cook for 5 minutes. Add crushed garlic, curry powder and cumin, cook briefly.

2. Pour in crushed tomatoes. Dice and add fresh tomatoes, stock cube, lentils and 3 cups water. Simmer for 15 minutes, season well with salt and pepper (see tip!).

3. Grate cucumber and squeeze out excess liquid using your hands. Combine with yoghurt and coriander, season to taste.
