The Perfect Lentil Dish!


1. Yellow lentils (250gm)
2. 5 large potatoes (skin peeled and sliced into thin pieces)
3. 500 gm of minced chicken (marinate with sea-salt)
4. Sea-salt
5. Sunflower oil


1. Heat up a wok. Pour about 3 tablespoons of sunflower oil once the wok is hot.

2. Pour the sliced potatoes into the wok, close the lid and allow to simmer on medium low heat until the potatoes have softened.

3. Fill a large pot with water enough to submerge all the 250gm lentils.

4. Boil the lentils for about 1/2 hour until softened.

5. Drain all the water from the lentils and set aside.

6. Once the potatoes have softened, add the minced chicken and cook until it is thoroughly cooked.

7. Add the lentils and then stir and mix all the three ingredients.

8. Add sea-salt to taste.

9. Serve with hot rice.

Bon appétit!


  1. Looks delicious. Evelyn, were you ever food-tested, I am so curious?!
    Also, I've been meaning to ask you, what do you do in terms of soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc? Personal health care items? Do you react to them or are you okay with using soap and shampoo?

    1. I was 'blood-tested'. Not 'food-tested' as the doctors saw it as very dangerous for me. I use daily products which are 'unscented'. Sometimes I even use baking soda as a facial scrub. It works for me! But it can trigger some allergy for people with sensitive skin. I am ok with the Simple brand shampoo and liquid bath gel. I am currently experimenting with this home-made liquid soap which my mum's friend makes.


    I wonder if minced is the same as what we call "ground" here?

    I am going to try ground turkey today for the first time post op!

    1. Yes, we call the ground meat as minced meat over here.
