Maneet Chauhan Loves Indian Street Food!
In “The Island Kitchen,” author Selina Periampillai includes a recipe for a lentil dish she sampled on the French island of Réunion, located in the Indian Ocean to the west of Madagascar. She describes the fragrant, creamy lentils, made with a local variety, as cooked in a cast-iron pot over a live fire. Inspired by her recipe, this lentil stew borrows her spicing but is chunkier in texture. We also add tomatoes to brighten both the flavor and color, and we garnish with yogurt for a touch of tangy richness. Serve with steamed rice.
cup brown or green lentils, rinsed and drained
teaspoon dried thyme
