Curried Lentils

The ginger was the big flavor in this dish and that’s all right by me ! Ginger and cumin just belong on lentils. This is not a super low cal side, so serve it next to a lighter dish like fish or chicken.

1 ½ c dry lentils, rinsed and drained
6 c water
1 t ground cumin
1 t oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 t chili and garlic sauce (available in the Asian section of your market)
1 t powdered ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
½ t ground turmeric
½ t salt
2 T chopped cilantro

Bring lentils and water to boil then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, 45 minutes. Once in a while, spoon off the foam that appears on the top of the pot. Heat a skillet and add cumin, oil and onion and cook about 5 minutes. Add tomato and chili sauce and continue cooking until tomato is very broken down, about 5 minutes. When lentils are tender and water is absorbed mix all together except the cilantro and cook 15 minutes. Add cilantro just before serving.
