Indian-Inspired Lentil Stew

Indian-Inspired Lentil Stew

A warm and hearty Indian-inspired lentil stew. Perfect for a cold night. The flavors of curry and cumin make this a very tantalizing dish and fill the kitchen with a very aromatic fragrance. This dish is easy to prepare and very yum! I like to serve this over steamed brown rice and with naan.
