Recipe Ingredients for Red Curry Lentils

2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tsp minced fresh ginger
2 tsp curry paste or powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 pinch salt
1 pinch cayenne
2/3 cup red lentils
3 cups water
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 large potato, peeled and cubed
1/2 lb extra-firm tofu, well drained and cut into 1/2-in (1 cm) cubes
1/3 cup raisins

Recipe Directions for Red Curry Lentils

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan or deep skillet set over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and ginger for 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in curry powder, cumin, salt and cayenne; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
