Sweet Potato Curry with Lentils - Recipe

Posted Jan 27 2009 8:15pm
This was last night's supper. It was delish. I had to modify a few things here and there in the recipe because it simply required more stock for it to simmer and cook the lentils. Not a big deal though and it wouldn't change the NI of the recipe.

I thoroughly enjoyed this dish. The best part is that this is a recipe for 1 serving. Since I'd be the only person eating it, it's great sometimes to not have to have tons of leftovers. But then again, I'd definitely eat up leftovers of this dish.

Ingredients
1 tsp vegetable oil
1/3c diced sweet potato
1/4c diced potato (generous)
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 small green chili, seeded and chopped (I used 1/2 a jalapeno. This is a serving for just one!)
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4c green lentils
5-7 tbsp hot vegetable stock (I ended up using waaaaaaay more stock for it to simmer and cook the lentils)
1/2 tsp garam masala (I used "Indian Masala" seasoning which I think is the same)
5-7 tbsp hot water (optional)
1 tbsp low fat plain yogurt
pepper

Directions

Heat the oil in a nonstick pan with a lid and saute the sweet potato over medium heat, turning occasionally, for 5 minutes

Meanwhile, put the potato into a pan of water, bring to a boil, and simmer for about 6 minutes, until almost cooked. Drain and set aside. When the sweet potato cubes are sauteed, remove them with a slotted spoon. Add the onion to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mintues, or until transclucent. Add the garlic, chile, and ginger and stir for 1 minute.

Return the sweet potato to the pan and add the boiled potato, lentils, half the stock, pepper to taste, and the garam masala. Stir well to combine, bring to a simmer and cover.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 mins, adding a little more stock of the curry looks too dry. Stir in the yogurt and serve.

Serves 1
