  • Wash the lentils in cold water until the water runs clear.
  • Put lentils in a pot with enough water to cover; bring to a boil, place a cover on the pot, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, adding water during cooking as needed to keep covered, until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onions in hot oil until caramelized, about 15 minutes.
  • Mix curry paste, curry powder, turmeric, cumin, chili powder, salt, sugar, garlic, and ginger together in a large bowl; stir into the onions.
  • Increase heat to high and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the tomato puree, remove from heat and stir into the lentils.
