Quick cooking lentils serve as the main ingredient in this comforting spiced stew. A generous dollop of plain yogurt helps tame the heat for those who prefer milder meals.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the carrots, onion, curry powder, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 2

Add the lentils and 4 cups water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are very tender, 12 to 16 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice.

Step 3

Meanwhile, cook the rice according to the package directions.

Step 4

Combine the yogurt, cilantro, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.

Step 5

Serve the lentils over the rice, topped with the cilantro yogurt and additional cilantro leaves. Serve with the lemon wedges.
