When time is of the essence, this thick-sauced curry is a cinch to make. It is a great side dish with Lamb with Yellow Split Peas. If you like, serve some cooked rice and Avocado Chutney alongside.


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon black or yellow mustard seeds


  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the mustard seeds, cover the pan, and cook until the seeds have stopped popping (not unlike popcorn), about 30 seconds. Sprinkle in the cumin seeds and cook until they sizzle and turn reddish brown, about 5 seconds. Add the turmeric, which will immediately turn the oil yellow. Then pour in
