Lentils and Potatoes Curry

  • 1 cup brown lentils
  • 3 1/2 cups liquid (I used 1 can of coconut milk topped with 1 1/2 cups water. You could use all water, some vegetable broth, or chicken broth if you’re not doing vegetarian)
  • 1 Tbs curry powder
  • 2-3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • plain yogurt and fresh cilantro

Rinse the lentils. Heat the lentils, liquid of choice, and curry powder to a simmer, stir, cover partially and cook 15 minutes. Stir now and then.

Add the cubed potatoes and stir in, then cover the pan completely  and cook 10 minutes or so, depending on how large the potato cubes are. If the lentils start to look too dry, add some more water. You don’t want them soupy but they should be moist.

Add salt and pepper to taste and cook another 10 minutes or so. Serve with yogurt and cilantro.
