chop and fry the onion and garlic in some olive oil till golden
add in the cinnamon and cumin and coat the onion and garlic (add pepper now if u want it)
after a minute or so add in the lentils and cook for 2 mins, give it a few stirs to distribute onions and spices evenly
add in chopped tomatoes, a generous squeeze of purée, beans and chilli powder
stir everything well and then add just enough boiling water to cover the lentils, put the lid on the pot and leave it for half an hour or so.
I like to serve this with avocado, boiled rice and chopped coriander/cilantro
Some more ideas to serve it with are corn on the cob, potato wedges or you could even put it in burritos or something!
