Duromatic: For 4-6 persons


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped (use it all from stem to leaf)
  • 1 medium green pepper (not red, it comes out strangely sweet!)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (or 14.5oz / 400g can) chopped tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • A few grinds black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups (300g) dry lentils
  • 2 cups (500ml) water


Add a dash of olive oil in your pre-heated pressure cooker and soften the onion, celery and pepper. When the whole mix is softened, add the chopped tomatoes and mix well. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and curry (if using). Now, add the lentils and water and mix well, rubbing the base of the cooker with the spoon to lift any brown bits that may have stuck there and incorporate them into the dish. Close and lock the lid of the pressure cooker. Turn the heat up to high and when the cooker reaches pressure, lower to the heat to the minimum required by the cooker to maintain pressure. Cook for 10-15 minutes at high pressure. When time is up, open the pressure cooker with the Natural release method - move the cooker off the burner and wait for the pressure to come down on its own (about 10 minutes). Open the pressure cooker and serve!
