Recipe Ingredients for cauliflower and red lentil curry

3 T lentils, rinsed
1 small onion, chopped
2 teaspoons curry powder, preferably Madras
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
2 cups water
14 oz. tomatoes, drained and chopped
4 cups chopped cauliflower
1 jalapeno pepper, halved, seeded and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon sugar

Recipe Directions for cauliflower and red lentil curry

  1. 1. Combine lentils, onions, curry powder, salt, turmeric and water in a large saucepan over low heat; bring to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are soft and the sauce has thickened, about 45 minutes. Add tomatoes, cauliflower and jalapeno peppers and simmer, covered, until the cauliflower is tender, 8 to 10 minutes longer. Remove from heat.

  2. 2. Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds and cook for about 10 seconds. Add garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until the garlic is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in cayenne and immediately add the oil-spice mixture to the cauliflower mixture. Stir in lemon juice, cilantro and sugar. Taste and adjust seasonings with additional salt and cayenne.
