What I love about this curry (in addition to its superb flavor, of course) is that while the lentils are simmering, I can quickly prepare the spice mixture and get a pot of rice started on the stove: a vegetarian meal that’s ready in under 45 minutes, including prep time. So pour yourself a glass of wine, tune the family out while you cook, and calm yourself down.
