Ingredients

    2 tbsp vegetable oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    Coarse sea salt or kosher salt
    1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
    1 (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
    1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, chopped
    1 tbsp curry powder
    1 bay leaf
    1 ˝ cups red lentils

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. In a saucepan or kettle, bring 3 ˝ cups of water to a boil.
2. In a large saucepan over high heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens, and 3 to 4 minutes.
3. Add the sweet potato, ginger, garlic, curry powder and bay leaf and sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in the boiling water and stir in the lentils. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the lentils break down and the sweet potatoes are tender, 18 to 20 minutes. Season with salt.
4. While the potatoes and lentils are cooking, wrap a stack of pita breads in a slightly damp cotton towel, and place in oven for 10 to 15 minutes.
