Masala Summer Curry

11 Jun

This recipe is courtesy of my lovely roommate, who filled our apartment with the most delicious smells as she conjured up this curry.

The only real requirements are coconut milk and curry sauce plus a starch, greens, and a protein.  A jar of good premade curry sauce delivers a sophisticated and delicious taste without much work.

This only took about 10 minutes to make once the lentils were cooked.
