Campfire Curry

One-Pot Lentil Curry


  • 1 cup of lentils
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 can of coconut milk (approximately 7 oz)
  • 1/2 can of diced tomatoes (approximately 7 oz)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt to taste


  1. Rinse the lentils under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, sauté the onions and garlic until they start to soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the curry powder to the pot and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the rinsed lentils, coconut milk, and diced tomatoes to the pot. Stir well to combine.
  5. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and allow it to simmer for about 25-30 minutes, until the lentils are tender. You can add a bit of water if the curry seems too thick.
  6. Season with salt to taste.
  7. Serve hot, preferably with a side of rice or naan bread. Enjoy your nutritious and filling one-pot lentil curry.
