NEW VIDEO: Indian Spiced Stew

Dried lentils, potatoes, onions… some of the most affordable ingredients you can buy, right? You’ll be happy to know the base of this stew relies on these cheapies, a few other veggies you’re so inclined, and some spices. That’s all you need to make a tasty and healthy meal to warm you up!

Watch the video:

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 cups cooked rice or grain of choice
  • 1 cup dried green lentils
  • 2 brown potatoes, chopped and cubed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp. salt and a few shakes of black pepper
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. garam masala
  • OPTIONAL VEGGIES: 1/2 green bell pepper, 1/2 red pepper, 3 cups spinach
  • 1/2 cup of sliced raw almonds
  • cilantro for garnish
Start cooking your rice/grains so they will be ready when the stew is done.
In a large soup pot add the lentils, potatoes, diced tomatoes and onion. Add water, cumin and garam masala. Mix everything together, then put in a stove at high heat until simmering. Then cover and reduce to low to continue to simmer for 35 minutes.
If adding fresh veggies, put them into the soup pot when you have only five minutes of cook time left so they can maintain some freshness.
In a small skillet, add the sliced almonds and turn up the heat to high. Let the almonds start to toast – they will get brown and fragrant. Toss them to toast evenly. DO NOT let them burn.
Time to plate! Put your rice or grains on the bottom of your dish, ladle stew on top, garnish with toasted almonds and cilantro.

Thank you once again to Matt and Sarah of Lehigh Valley Mirror for the great video!
