As with all of my  Zombie apocalypse recipes, every ingredient in this recipe has a very long shelf life so you can be eating delicious food well into the Zombie horror. So, you need some Indian Ghee, tinned brown lentils, tinned tomatoes, tomato paste, a beef stock cube and a whole range of spices. No spices. Really people, have you not been reading about stocking up on the non-essentials  to ensure culinary delights in the midst of the zombie mayhem.


  • 1 tbsp of Indian Ghee for a great base
  • 1 tsp of garlic powder or to your taste
  • 1 tin ( 14 oz / 400 gram) diced tomatoes
  • 1 sachet / 2 tbsp of Leggo’s tomato base
  • 1 beef stock cube for yummy flavour.
  • 2 ( 14 oz / 400 gram) tins coconut milk
  • 1 tin ( 14 oz / 400 gram) green lentils
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon paprika or to taste again
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder or to taste


  1. Place the Ghee in to a saucepan over the lowest heat that is possible.
  2. Add the garlic powder and stir continuously until the Ghee is melted.
  3. Be very careful because Ghee burns very easily. Keep it on a low heat.
  4. Tip in the coconut milk and tomatoes and continue on the lowest heat.
  5. Wait until the mix is simmering softly and leave it for around 10 minutes.
  6. Add the tomato paste which will give you the baseline for how it tastes.
  7. Next add the beef stock cube and stir until it has dissolved in the mix.
  8. Simmer for around 5 minutes and then add all the spices stirring well.
  9. Now simmer the mix for at least thirty minutes or until it has thickened.
  10. Tip in the tinned lentils remembering that they don’t need to be boiled.
  11. Give it five minutes or so and then adjust the spice levels to your taste.
