Vegetable curry

A vegetable curry is always a winner, and this one is very easy to make. Because of the lentils, this recipe's cooking time is longer than that of some other curries, but in the end it’s worth it. The lentils thicken the curry sauce and add a slightly sweet and nutty flavour. Plus, they are a great source of iron and proteins!
