This creates a healthy, inexpensive and easy stew with depths of flavor. This recipe is fairly low on the heat scale, but feel free to add more cayenne pepper to up its spiciness. It is excellent served with chapatis or rice.



  1. In a large pot, combine and cook water, lentils, salt and bay leaf.
  2. In a large frying pan, combine cubed potatoes, turmeric, cayenne pepper and olive oil and fry for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Add to the pot with the lentils, and then combine all ingredients and cook until the potatoes are soft and tender. Remove bay leaf before serving.
