I never feel more present than when i’m preparing the vegetable mélange in this bright red dish. I feel the beauty of the moment as I infuse the red lentils with cumin, ginger, and the bite of chili powder and watch the whole thing simmer down into a creamy purée. Revel in this delectable entrée, which is best served over basmati rice. Thanks to my mother-in-law, Shirley, for sharing this recipe with me that is so aligned with my heritage.
