    1. 1
      Rinse lentils in strainer and sort through, removing debris.
    2. 2
      Heat 1 TBS broth in medium soup pot. Saute onion in broth over medium heat for 5 minutes stirring frequently, until translucent.
    3. 3
      Add garlic, carrots, celery, and cabbage. Continue to sauté for another couple of minutes.
    4. 4
      Add curry powder and mix to bring out its flavour.
    5. 5
      Add rinsed and drained lentils, broth and tomatoes.
    6. 6
      Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer uncovered until lentils and vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Add cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste.
    8. 8
      Serve over rice / toast / etc.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      I rarely have fresh cilantro so substitute 1-2TBS dried coriander. Usually end up forgetting it altogether though.
    11. 11
      I play fast and loose with the quantities - very forgiving recipe.
    12. 12
      Servings are a guess, I tend to make lots and use up all the vegies I can find.

      Very good recipe. I like my lentil curry with a bit more lentils, so I added two cups. Also I doubled the curry powder because I wanted it spicier. It also works well with about 4 fresh tomatoes, rather than canned tomatoes.

      This is my new favorite comfort food - and healthy, too. I used 2 cups of green lentils to make it thicker. I also added 1 teaspoon garam masala. Out of necessity, I added 4 cups water with 2 chicken bouillon cubes instead of stock. (It did not need further salt additions.) I buy the big packages (3 lbs.) of shredded cabbage/cole slaw mix at Sam's Club and try to use the whole bag within a week to eat healthier, so I used that in place of the cabbage. It was perfect. Thank you Andrea-Oz.
