  Curried Lentils with Kale and Coconut Milk (Masoor Dal)

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or peanut oil (or olive oil)
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped, to yield 1-1.5 cups
  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons yellow or brown mustard seeds
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin or fennel
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 31⁄2 cups water
  • 14-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup red lentils
  • 1/2 cup French green lentils
  • 6 ounces kale (or baby spinach), about 6 cups, leaves removed from stems, roughly chopped
  • fresh lime, for serving, optional

  1. In a large pot over medium-high, combine the oil, onion, garlic and 1 teaspoon salt. When you hear a sizzle, cover the pot, turn heat to low, and cook, stirring every so often, until the onion has softened and is just beginning to color, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in the ginger, the mustard seeds, turmeric, coriander, fennel and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the water, coconut milk, lentils, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, then bring to a boil. Reduce to low, cover and simmer, stirring once or twice, until the lentils have broken down, 40 to 50 minutes.
