Lovely lentil bobotie

Delicious vegetarian bobotie!

1 garlic clove
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1  1/2 cups lentils
3 carrots
2 onions
1 small red and 1 small yellow/green pepper
a head of cabbage
olive oil
2 eggs
250 ml milk
3 bay leaves
some fruit chutney to serve

Heat the pan to high heat. Fry the spices in some olive oil for about 3 minutes. Cut the vegetables into small pieces. Add the onions and peppers and fry for a further 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding some more olive oil. Add the cabbage and carrots. Cover the veggies with a lid and let them cook for about 10 minutes until soft.

Cook the lentils(if you are using uncooked lentils) with a pinch of salt for about 20 minutes, covered and on low heat for about 20 minutes.

When the lentils are cooked mix them together with the veggies. Place the veggies and the lentil mix into a square glass bowl (400 x 200).

Stir the eggs and milk together and pour over the lentil mixture. Put the bay leaves onto the dish and cook in the oven on 180 degrees for 40 minutes or until golden.

Serve with couscous or yellow rice, chutney and banana.
