Album 'James Blake'


red split lentils 150g

water 300g

4 large tomatoes

1 tsp turmeric

1tsp garam masala

1 tsp chilli powder

Boil lentils in water for 20 minutes.

then fry oil with tomatoes and everything else.

when tomatoes are soft add the cooked lentils and keep on a low heat for 10 minutes.

This album is intense and I don't think my housemate will appreciate the bass at 11:45pm.
