This recipe is actually a weight loss diet created by a popular SA comedian. I find it tastes great as a side for most protein and it's delicious on its own too. Even my kids love it.
I like adding extra soy sauce when servinf it and it's good with chopped boiled egg, canned tuna, chopped chicken and cooked veggies like carrots, corn, broccoli or pretty much any chopped added veggies.


  • 1

    onion, finely chopped
  • 2

    cloves garlic, crushed (optional)
  • 25
  • 7
    curry powder
  • 1

    tomato, skinned and diced, or a few small tomatoes, skinned
  • 300
    brown rice
  • 180
    lentils, sorted and rinsed
  • 500
    chicken stock
  • 25
    brown sugar
  • 50
    soy sauce

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil until soft. Add 5-7 ml curry powder and stir-fry for about another minute. Add the tomato and simmer to form a purée. Add the brown rice and lentils and about 250 ml chicken stock and simmer slowly until the lentils and the rice are soft and cooked, but not mushy. Add more chicken stock as required ? just enough to be absorbed by the rice and lentils. Add the brown sugar and soy sauce and season with salt and black pepper. Serves 4.
