Lentil Curry Balls with a creamy Tomato Curry Coconut Sauce

Little Story by Claire from Truefoodsblog: This recipe is made from a strong craving I had. I really felt like Indian food, but not like always- to make something with spinach or daal. Not that I am not into daal and palak paneer anymore, but this time I wanted to try something different. This recipe has also been created in a way that we were able to create other dishes from it. That means that we used to Lentil Balls for a super nice Lentil Balls and hummus Sandwich the next day.

If you are anything like us – food prep is all around being creative with leftovers, rather than cooking the same dish for a whole week. So these lentil balls are perfect for this use. Especially because properly cooled and packaged, they are easily usable for at least 4 days.

Hope you enjoy this little experiment. Especially the meat eaters beneath us: let us know what you think!
