  • Mince ginger. Set aside.
  • 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 until tender, adding water during cooking as needed to keep covered, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, stirring frequently, and cook until caramelized, approximately 20 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, combine curry paste, curry powder, turmeric, cumin, chili powder, salt, garlic, and ginger.
  • Stir curry mixture into onions. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring constantly, until spices are fragrant, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce to onion mixture, stirring to combine.
  • Remove from heat and add cooked lentils, stirring to completely combine.
  • Let cool slightly and serve with your favorite side dish.
