  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and diced

  • 6 ounces spinach leaves, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • additional broth, as needed

In a bowl, cover lentils with an inch of warm water, stir in the vinegar and soak 8 hours, up to overnight. After soaking, drain lentils and rinse well.

In a soup pot, warm the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Stir in the diced onions, carrots, celery, sweet potato, garlic and pink salt. Sauté, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 5-7 minutes. Add the cumin, coriander, paprika and turmeric. Mix well. Sauté 30-60 seconds to bloom the flavors, stirring constantly, being careful not to burn the aromatics.

Add the broth, lentils, tomatoes and bay leaves. Stir well. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to simmer and cover. Simmer about 45 minutes, or until lentils are tender.

Stir in the parsley and spinach and simmer, uncovered, until the spinach is wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste.

If a thinner soup is desired, add more broth and salt and pepper as needed. Remove the bay leaves before serving.

Servings: 6
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

  • 6 large mackerels
  • salt for rubbing on fish
  • turmeric for rubbing on fish
  • 2 medium onions
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 10-12 dry red chilis
  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seeds
  • 2 tablespoons rice
  • 2 tablespoons + 1/2 teaspoon urad dal
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • marble size ball tamarind
  • salt to taste

Clean the fish, descale and cut each into 3 pieces. Apply salt and turmeric to the fish pieces and set aside for 30 minutes.

Slice 1 onion and chop the other, keep aside.

On a heated skillet, add 1 tablespoon coconut oil then roast chilis and coriander seeds on medium heat until fragrant, keep aside. On the same skillet, roast mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, rice and urad dal until fragrant, set aside.

Using the same skillet, add another teaspoon of coconut oil and sauté sliced onion until translucent. Add shredded coconut and toast until coconut changes its color to brown. Add turmeric powder and fry for another minute then set aside.

In a food processor, combine toasted coconut, sautéed onion, roasted coriander seeds, tamarind, and dry red chilis into a very fine paste, using a little water. Next add roasted mustard seeds, fenugreek seeds, rice and urad dal and process for a couple seconds more.

In a saucepan, heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil, and add the contents of the food processor.

Next, add chopped onion and fry till golden. Add ground masala paste and sauté for a minute or two. Add a little water but do not make it runny – the consistency of the curry should not be very thin. Add marinated fish.

Cook on medium high heat until it boils. Stir occasionally taking care not to break the fish.

Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Add salt to taste.

Remove from heat and serve with steaming hot rice.

Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 45 minutes

Marinated Meat:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or approximately 1 1/2 – 2 cups chopped raw chicken, or about 1 pound thinly sliced beef or meat of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, ground, or freshly grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice

Sauteed Vegetables:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or butter
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 thinly sliced bell pepper
  • 1 large peeled and coined carrot

Curry Paste:

Sauce:

Mix all marinated meat ingredients together in a container with a cover, and allow to marinate in refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight.

In a medium skillet, melt the coconut oil over high heat and saute onion, bell pepper and carrot until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the veggies and keep warm in a covered bowl.

In the same skillet, melt 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Add the marinated meat and saute over medium high heat until cooked through, about 10 minutes.

Lower heat to medium and push the meat to one side of the pan. Add the curry paste ingredients to the open side of the skillet and stir together until combined.

Add coconut milk to the skillet. Add the salt and sugar and stir thoroughly to incorporate curry paste. Cook over medium heat until beginning to boil, stirring continuously. Add the veggies and the basil, if using. Serve hot over Jasmine rice.

*For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)
