    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a large, heavy skillet or stew pot, fry the onions in butter until they are golden brown. With a slotted spoon, remove about 1/3 of the slices and set aside.
    2. 2
      Add to the pot the ginger, garlic and chili paste, and fry for 5-6 minutes, stirring constantly. Then add the lentils, green peas, carrots and green beans. Reduce heat and cook for 15 minutes, adding more butter or a bit of oil if needed.
    3. 3
      Add the tomatoes, spices and mint, and stir for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Then pour a cup of hot water, cover, and simmer until vegetables are about half cooked.
    5. 5
      Add rice, potatoes, salt and another 4-5 cups of hot water (use the lesser amount if your vegetables have created quite a bit of liquid). Cover again, and cook for another 20-30 minutes until rice is done and water is absorbed.
    6. 6
      To serve, garnish with the reserved onion slices, and pass around a bowl of yogurt as a sauce.

      Scaled this down and wish I had made the full amount to freeze for later. Other then cutting back on the chili peppers and cayenne I made as posted - all enjoyed the very full flavored dish.
