Peanut lentil curry

Peanut lentil curry

I had a small victory the other day. I made a curry for my little brother (also known as the pickiest eater of 2016) and he loved it. Sooo much! He even said: ''It's better than 'Little India' '' (his favourite take-out). 

If you've ever had to cook for a picky eater then you know what a victory that was. But to be completely honest, this curry is pretty amazing. It requires so little effort yet is so delicious and wonderfully filling. I urge you to try this at home!
