- Prep: 45 mins
- Yields: Serves 2-4
In a large saucepan, saute onion in the coconut oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes 5 Minutes .
Add in the curry powder, mustard seeds, turmeric and rinsed/strained red lentils - cook for another 5 minutes 5 Minutes . Stir the lentils frequently, add more oil if necessary.
Mix in the coconut milk, salt, lime/lemon juice and water. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low, cover the pot and let simmer for about 20-25 minutes 20 Minutes . Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. If the lentils have absorbed all of the liquid and are still not cooked, add a little water. Once the lentils are cooked they will break down quite a bit and you'll have a reasonably thick dahl-like consistency.
Stir in the cashews and spinach, along with cilantro if using. Warm lentils through for 5 minutes 5 Minutes and you're ready to serve.
