Chop the onion and ginger. Add them in the simmerpot together with lentils, coconut milk, water and curry paste. Mix until smooth. Allow to simmer covered with a lid for about 45 minutes or until the lentils are done. Meanwhile, prepare the mint oil by blending all the ingredients together and adjusting the flavours.
