A Spicey Indian version on Lentils A Spicey Indian version on Lentils
Number of Servings: 2


    1 cup French Puy Lentils
    1 12- oz package of frozen spinach
    1 onion , thinly sliced
    4-5 cloves of garlic , thinly sliced
    1 large tomato , diced
    2 tsp black mustard seeds , ground into a powder in a food processor of coffee grinder
    1 tbsp canola or other vegetable oil
    1 tsp cumin seeds
    1 tsp red chilli powder
    1/2 tsp turmeric

    1 cup Lentils
    1 package (10 oz) yields Spinach, frozen
    1 large Onions, raw
    1 medium whole (2-3/5" dia) Red Ripe Tomatoes
    1 1tsp Olive Oil


Cover the lentils with water, bring to a boil, cover with a lid and simmer until the lentils are tender, about 1 hour. I do this in a pressure cooker, but you can do this on the stove-top or in the microwave.
Heat the oil in a saucepan.
Add the cumin seeds and, when they sputter, add the sliced onions.
Saute the onions until translucent, then add the garlic. Stir-fry for another minute.
Add the spinach and saute for another 3-4 minutes. You want the spinach to have completely thawed before adding the remaining ingredients.
Add tomatoes, chilli powder, turmeric and mustard-seed powder. Stir together for about a minute.
Add the lentils-spinach mixture and stir in.
Add salt to taste. Bring the curry to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for five minutes.
