Instructions:

Stove Top:

Heat a large saucepan over a medium-high heat and spray with cooking oil spray.

Spray the pan with some more cooking oil spray and add the onion, fry for a couple of minutes until translucent.

Add the butternut squash, garlic and ginger to the food processor and pulse a few times until very finely chopped

Add this into the onion with another spray of cooking oil spray and fry until softened.

Add in the spices, tomato paste and tomatoes and cook the spices for a couple of minutes.

Add in the beef, lentils, green chillis, water and salt, bring to a boil and then simmer for 1.5 hours, (beef should be lovely and tender and the sauce rich).

If you like your dhansak curry more liquidy, you can add in a little more water if needed.

Check it half way through cooking time.

Serve with your choice of sides and some chopped coriander.
