    rpgaymer's Note:

    I came up with this to use up some ingredients I had on hand. It's sort of like a dahl, but with chicken and a few other untraditional ingredients. Serve over rice, or just eat with naan or a piece of crusty bread.

    1. 1
      Heat the ghee in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the garlic, serrano peppers, fennel seeds & cumin seeds. Cook for a further 2-3 minutes, while stirring, until the seeds are slightly toasted and fragrant.
    3. 3
      Add the ginger, curry powder, turmeric, garam masala, black pepper & salt. Saute for just about a minute.
    4. 4
      Add the chicken to the pot and brown a bit, until no longer pink, for about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Finally, stir in lentils, tomato sauce, chicken broth, and spinach. Bring to a boil, then lower heat & simmer while covered for 45 minutes. Stir every 15 minutes or so, and add water if mixture gets a bit too dry.
    6. 6
      Once the lentils are cooked, the curry is done. Remove from heat, and stir in yogurt. When serving, top with parsley and eggs.

      The dish was excellent. Even my picky child liked it (with a little cheese on top). The high sodium level is a concern so to help a little I used low sodium broth and tomato sauce.
