Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large pan over a low-medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes more. Stir in both seeds and the ginger. Cook for another 2 minutes, then add the tin of tomatoes, the lentils and 600ml cold water.
  2. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring often, for 20-25 minutes until the lentils are soft. Stir in 1 tbsp mango chutney, plus salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the grill (or a griddle pan) to medium-high. Put the chicken in a bowl, then mix with the yogurt and the rest of the mango chutney. Grill/griddle for 12-15 minutes until starting to char, then turn and cook for 5 minutes more or until completely cooked through. Set aside to rest.
  4. Slice the grilled chicken and serve with the lentils, topped with coriander sprigs, with lime wedges on the side, plus extra mango chutney and yogurt.
