Dhansak Curry Pack

Serves: 4 – 6 Vegetarian Vegan

A traditional, hearty Sunday lunch from the Parsi community. The Dhansak is a dish which combines meat with vegetables and lentils, as indicated by the name - Dhan means grains and sak means vegetables. As an added bonus, these are all cooked together in one pan, which means less washing up!

Traditionally, a Dhansak would be served with fried meatballs (koftas) and rice browned with caramelised sugar.

Try it with: Lamb, topped with lots of tangy mint sauce (Rafi's favourite), chicken or fresh spring veg

Shelf life & storage: The mix will last for up to 4 weeks in a fridge and for six months in a freezer. Once cooked the food will last for 2 days in a fridge and up to one month in a freezer.

  1. Empty the contents of the pack into a pan with 170g mixed lentils, 1 chopped aubergine, 1 potato, 1 carrot, 60g spinach, 1 tsp mint sauce, 2 tsp sugar, and 700ml water.
  2. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat.
