Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté shallots, ginger, garlic and scotch bonnet until brown, about 1 minute. Add in zucchini, cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt and stir for 1 minute.
Add in water, lentils and coconut milk, then stir. Cover the skillet and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
When ready, turn the heat off, then stir in the spinach into the hot curry until withered. Serve with a side of fresh pita.
