Rinse the lentils thoroughly and place in saucepan on a medium heat. Once lentils have started to soften (around 10 mins at a rolling boil) add in the tin of tomatoes, tomato paste, two teaspoons of Worcester sauce, one flat teaspoon of hot English mustard and a heaped teaspoon of Italian herbs. Simmer for 15 mins and turn off heat.
Serve over pasta with a sprinkle of parmesan.
This sauce improves overnight so I will often make up a batch to do several meals. It works well for lasagne and as a tomato base for pizza.
Boil the eggs , place in cold water, bring to the boil and simmer for at least 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool quickly in cold water.
Cook the rice. For Basmati rice place one cup of rice and two cups of cold water into the saucepan along with the lentils. Bring to the boil, cover with lid and turn heat down to lowest setting for 10 minutes.
Peel and chop eggs roughly.
Open and drain fish.
Add curry powder to butter and make a paste, mix into the cooked rice and add eggs and fish. Mix in the chopped parsley.
