Sweet Potato and Lentil Curry

This one-pot curry is inspired by one of BBC Good Food's most popular recipes. By cooking the red lentils (don't use canned lentils) in the sauce it becomes a savoury stew with plenty of protein and fibre. You could also replace the spices with a Thai red curry paste.
