Method
Coconut Lentil Curry

Step 01

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until golden brown.
Step 02
Add ginger, dried chillies, tomatoes and spices to the mixture and continue stirring for about 2-3 minutes.
Step 03
Stir in the lentils, followed by water. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the lentils are soft. Be sure to stir constantly to avoid the lentils from sticking to the bottom.
Step 04
Once the lentils are soft, add in the coconut milk and bring it back to a simmer for 2 minutes.
Step 05
Remove the curry from the heat and mix in the cilantro.
Step 06
Serve it hot with a side of basmati rice.

Replace cilantro with some curry leaves to intensify the flavours!
