Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat, and sauté garlic and ginger about 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Sprinkle with curry powder and turmeric. Add coconut milk and lentils. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 15 minutes more, or until lentils are softened.

Notes

This curry pulls in the flavors and textures of a South Indian meal. For a richer version, use regular coconut milk, and serve over basmati rice. Ripe tropical fruit such as mangoes or papayas provide a fitting conclusion.

A dash of local for every season
