Red Lentil Curry

Red Lentil Curry is one of my favorite meals for when I have almost nothing in my fridge or cupboard except for a bit of onion, garlic and ginger (which I’m never without).   It only takes about 15 minutes in total so it’s perfect for when you’re hungry and tired.

Here’s how to do it:

Put your rice in the rice-cooker and bring your red lentils to a boil and then turn off heat and cover.  I always get my lentils from Iherb, but you can also find them at Asian supermarkets.

Chop up some onion, garlic and ginger.  Fry in oil with the following spices, which are all from the fabulous Iherb:

Cumin, Coriander, Cinnamon (only a tiny bit), coriander, salt.

Add the lentils and some coconut milk.  Bring to a boil and cook over low heat until at your  desired consistency.  If you have some fresh cilantro or green onion, put on top.  If not, no worries.  Just serve over rice. Delicious!
