First, cook the lentils: rinse and place them in a pot with a large amount of cold unsalted water and cook for 20 to 25 minutes. Then drain and rinse them with cold water. Set aside. For a quicker version, you can buy ready-to-eat Puy lentils and skip this step. 
Thinly peel and chop the onion, grate the ginger, peel and cut the carrots and celery stalks, rinse the spinach.


In a large pan on medium heat, cook the onion with oil, Madras curry, chili and grated ginger until the onion is soft.
