a curry recipe!

Made this delicious curry yesterday, and wanted to share!  We've really been getting into lentils this year...mmm :)  Also, I had never cooked with curry powder before.  It smells (and tastes) SO good!!

(serves 6)
2 cups uncooked brown rice
salt to taste
1 cup lentils, rinsed and soaked overnight in 1 cup water
1 large tomato, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 1/2 tbls curry powder
1/2 cup chopped cashews
3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt

Rinse rice until clear.  Transfer to medium pot.  Cook rice over medium-low heat, stirring gently, until fragrant and toasted (3-5 minutes).  Add 4 cups water and salt, cover and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until water is absorbed (about 1 hour).  Uncover pot, fluff rice and set aside.

Meanwhile, simmer the lentils in 3 cups water, partially covered, for 20 minutes.  Add tomato, onion, garlic, curry powder and salt.  Simmer for 30 more minutes, covered, until lentils are tender.  Serve over rice.  Top with cashews and a dollop of yogurt.
