Spicy Lentil and Vegetable Dish

------So easy, so healthy, so cheap! This is not a curry. It's a spicy, nutritious one-pot dish. Can -- actually should -- be made the day before, as flavours definitely improve on standing: this was clear when I tucked into the leftovers. It's not a glamorous dish: it's rustic and robust. It's quicker still to throw together if you first mix the spices together in a bowl, and also prepare the vegetables, before you start. Do not use substitutions (except those suggested) and do use fresh spices! Old spices are useless.------
