Cooking Time: 30 min
150 g Dried Lentils
200 g Carrots
55 g Onion
1 Clove Garlic
100 g Tomato
130 g Scallions
10 Dried Curry Leaves
1 Tsp of Dried Thyme
2.9 L Water
1 Tbsp of Olive Oil
1 Pinch of Pepper
In a pot, add 2.9 L of water and heat the water to boiling point. Water loss during the cooking process is already accounted for, but feel free to add more water for desired fluidity, when cooking.
Add 1 tsp salt to the water.
The carrots(unpeeled), scallions, tomato, onion, garlic are cut into small pieces.
The previously added water should be boiling by now. Add the lentils to the boiling water and stir from time to time.
In another pot, add 1 tbsp olive oil and turn on medium/high heat.
Shortly fry the onion, garlic and tomato before adding the carrots, scallions, dried curry leaves and thyme which are to be fried as well.
The Lentils are ready when tender, i.e. it is possible to press the lentil flat with your fingers. When the lentils are tender, add them together with the water, in the other pot containing the fried ingredients. Stir from time to time.
The mixture is boiled for 5 min under a lid.
Season with salt & a pinch of pepper.
